Flooding: National problem, local solutions? Sat 3 December 2016, Cumbria


Unfortunately this event has been postponed until 2017. Further details to follow.

On Saturday 3 December 2016, the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)’s 21st Century Challenges team and North West region will hold a discussion in Cumbria focusing on how communities are building resilience in the face of increased flood risk and whether Cumbria’s experience can help develop a flood plan for the whole of the UK.

Saturday 3 December 3.00pm – 6.30pm (Discussion and buffet)
Rheged Centre, Redhills, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 0DQ
In the face of increasing flood risk, people are coming together and using local knowledge to build resilience. Can communities learn from each other? Can Cumbria’s experience help develop a national flood plan?
