London Rivers Week 2024: Make London a ‘sponge city’ panel event

June 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

There is an urgent need to increase London’s resilience to climate change by creating major new wetland areas and an estimated 357,000 new rain gardens of around 20 m sq each.  Existing targets are set too far in the future.  Action is needed now! As standard, any roadworks should require a needs assessment for rain-gardens, and where needed – delivery!  This is the most cost effective way to accelerate rain garden creation.

Rain gardens are also a wonderful way to green our streets and can include trees, helping with urban cooling.  Rain gardens can also help with making our streets greener and more welcoming for pedestrians and cyclists.

Learn more at this event which will include networking opportunities for people interested in this important issue.

Location:  The Gallery -70 Cowcross Street, London, EC1M 6EJ
