Theevent for water resources leaders dedicated to tackling the environmental crisis in Birmingham, UK.

Target groups: engineers, technicians, decision makers, professionals in water management
Category: Conference


In the midst of a climate emergency, the water industry must take centre stage, build resilience and ensure a secure supply of water for future generations.

Reducing demand, restoring rivers and delivering environmental commitments are some of the many challenges facing the sector, and immediate collaborative action is required. New regulation and frameworks are instigating change, but what will they mean for the water industry? And how can we act more quickly to mitigate risk and plan for the long term?

The 2020 WWT Water Security in a Changing Environment Conference will address these issues, uniting the water industry and environmental stakeholders to tackle the climate crisis, improve water quality, drive investment in green infrastructure, prevent risk around chalk streams and manage abstraction and trade. Learn from the sector’s leaders and help protect water resources in a changing environment at this one-day event designed to answer some of the world’s biggest challenges.

Only here can you:

  • Find out how the National Framework will impact you
