Blue-green infrastructure provides many benefits, from climate change adaptation and mitigation to health and wellbeing and biodiversity.

At the fourth and final webinar in the Blue-Green Infrastructure series, ICE East Midlands Regional Chair, Ben McGrath, Nanco Dolman, Royal HaskoningDHV, and Dr Emily O'Donnell, University of Nottingham, will be joined by ICE President, Rachel Skinner.

The ICE President will provide an outline of her ‘Shaping Zero’ programme and, together with the speakers, take a closer look at the leaders in the blue-green infrastructure nationally.

The speakers will focus on the need for a fundamental change in how UK cities tackle urban water challenges and develop visions for ‘blue-green’ urban futures to help achieve the net zero target and make cities in the region and nationally, more sustainable and liveable.

They will also take a closer look into the Blue-Green Futures research (their published paper is available here).
