Urban River corridors in the Urban Environment. Developing a Vision for the Future

Sheffield, UK • Thursday, 18 November 2010

Only one month left to register for the URSULA (Urban River Corridors an Sustainable Living Agendas) Conference.

The aim of the conference is to reflect on the important changes that have occurred in relation to the way we view water in the urban environment and in particular urban river corridors.  We will look at the range of future measures that will be required to meet existing and future requirements posed by development, regeneration, climate change and well-being agendas to further enhance the urban water environment.  The conference is the place to be for those interested in urban planning, development and regeneration,  professionals working with issues in the urban environment such as flooding and the use of SuDs, ecologists interested in urban river ecosystems, and those looking to plan water into urban areas. With high profile speakers from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment, the Environment Agency, and the University of Sheffield, and sessions to discuss the information and ideas presented, the conference promises to be both a fascinating and productive forum on the issues facing urban river corridors.

And for those wanting more, the conference will be followed by an evening meal where you can socialise with the conference attendees, and the day after with site visits led by local experts in the Sheffield area, to locations being studied in the URSULA project.  To find out more and to register for the conference, click here to download the conference programme and registration form.
