Flood and Coast 2020 announce new online video series with ASN Media

Flood and Coast and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) are pleased to announce a brand-new video series being produced by ASN Media in support of the Flood and Coast Digital Series.

ASN Media are already hard at work producing a news style programme in partnership with CIWEM titled ‘Adapting for Tomorrow's Environment’, due to launch in December 2020 (more information here). Additionally, ASN Media will produce a series of short videos focused around the themes for Flood and Coast 2020 that will be filmed using remote techniques and presented by a reporter from a studio. It will capture some of the key talking points of the conference and explore the biggest challenges facing the FCERM sector in preparation for COP26.

With contributions from Flood and Coast speakers and sponsor organisations, the series will provide a vital snapshot of some of the pressing issues the FCERM sector faces, whilst offering insight into available solutions and innovative approaches.

The series will launch on October 13th 2020, the first of four Flood and Coast 2020 digital series and will be hosted on the Flood and Coast website, promoted through social media and communicated via e-mail with the entire Flood and Coast community, including attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors.

Terry Fuller from CIWEM (who produce Flood and Coast) said: ‘We know how important it is to bring our community together this year to focus on the climate emergency, this additional video series will play an important role in carrying many of the key messages from Flood and Coast 2020 to a broader audience’.

Max Smith from ASN Media said: ‘Online communications now play an invaluable role for all organisations, but especially those working on solutions to the climate and ecological emergency. We’re delighted to work with Flood and Coast to capture and share these important stories with the FCERM community’.

CIWEM partners with ASN Media to present ‘Adapting for Tomorrow's Environment’

The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) has partnered with ASN Media to produce a news and current affairs programme about the role of water and environmental management professionals in developing solutions to the climate and ecological emergency.

Presented by Tom Heap (BBC News, Countryfile, Panorama), the programme will feature interviews and special reports from across the water and environmental management sector that take a multidisciplinary approach to climate adaptation, mitigation and resilience.

“CIWEM is centrally placed as a multidisciplinary knowledge hub to facilitate many of the solutions to the climate and ecological emergency. As the importance of delivering together increases, so does the need to share successes. This exciting partnership with ASN Media enables CIWEM to ensure these stories reach broarder audiences,” said Terry Fuller, Chief Executive of CIWEM.

With governments around the world declaring climate emergencies, CIWEM is clear that bodies at all levels of society must factor adaptation and resilience into their management and development programmes. CIWEM recognises the necessity for environmental professionals and decision makers to develop greater trust with the communities that bear the brunt of the crisis humankind faces from global overheating, extreme weather events and wildlife loss.

‘Adapting for Tomorrow's Environment’ will highlight the work of leaders and organisations advancing the latest initiatives in climate adaptation whilst maintaining the application of scientific rigour and impartiality. The programme will promote professionalism and technical leadership whilst raising awareness and inspiring the next generation of environmental professionals.

Max Smith, Director, ASN Media said, “As our planet faces unprecedented challenges, there’s never been a more important time to broadcast the important work underway to support a sustainable future. We’re excited to engage with CIWEM and professionals throughout the water and environmental management sector to tell those stories.”

‘Adapting for Tomorrow's Environment’ will launch in December during the Flood and Coast 2020 webinar series (a CIWEM event produced in partnership with the Environment Agency). It will then be promoted through an extensive digital marketing and communications campaign to the wider environmental sector, including CIWEM members and partners, government, industry and academia.
