  • [Webinar] Exploring the Barriers and Opportunities for Infiltration SuDS on Potentially Contaminated Brownfield Land:
    25 November 10:00 BST

    Infiltration SuDS is an important part of sustainable urban water management for new development and infrastructure. Its incorporation into brownfield projects poses risks to water resources not necessarily present for other types of land. British Geological Survey would like to gain a better understanding of the data, information and knowledge required to support infiltration SuDS scheme design and implementation in urban areas to feed into our existing research and innovation activities such as the Community Water Management for a Liveable London (CAMELLIA) project. 

    This virtual workshop will seek to engage with planners, designers and ground and water engineering professionals to exchange knowledge on current good practice in infiltration SuDS and urban future water planning. This virtual workshop will be interactive and engaging with results disseminated after the event.

  • Developing Effective Risk Communication Strategies & Improving Community & Stakeholder Engagement:

    Effectively engaging and communicating with stakeholders and communities is an important aspect of many large-scale, complex or disruptive remediation, regeneration and infrastructure development projects, as well as those that are more controversial. Understanding how those affected perceive the project and helping them to understand the objectives can significantly reduce the risk of delays and increased costs, as well as improve company reputation and community relations.

    This webinar will look at the importance of understanding stakeholders’ perceptions of risk and how to develop effective risk communication strategies for different stages of a project and different types of projects, as well as techniques for better engaging with different stakeholders and community groups.
