Day 1 | Mon, 28 Jun: Delivering Together
Collaboration is at the heart of recent strategies and policy development on FCERM, reflecting the complexity of flooding and the range of responsible and wider stakeholder organisations. Sessions on day 1 will explore lessons and challenges from recent flood events and the compounding impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on response and recovery. How can we further build social resilience and what role can digital technologies and community support frameworks including faith networks play in doing so?
Day 2 | Tue, 29 Jun: Future skills, knowledge and tools / A nation resilient to climate change
As climate change exacerbates flood risk over coming decades we will need a range of innovations to skillsets, approaches, tools and people to manage this effectively. Through hydraulics, modelling and forecasting, as well as nature-based solutions we will showcase the latest approaches in two parallel sessions. Women in FCERM will celebrate the achievements and leadership of women in the sector and we will learn lessons from how the five nations are tackling climate change.
Day 3 | Wed, 30 Jun: Creating green and sustainable places
Optimising resilience means considering a range of sustainability factors and working these into the places we live and work, reflecting local needs and priorities and delivering them at a range of scales. Planning for this resilience and delivering it needs strong leadership, allied to robust delivery. How can we achieve this as effectively as possible, including through interventions such as property flood resilience and sustainable drainage?
Day 4 | Thu, 1 Jul: Adaptive planning and thought leadership
Adaptive planning allows local places to make the right decisions at the right time and effective planning for long-term change can lead to real transformation when thinking is done at both a policy and local community level. The next generation has new angles about the climate change adaptation priorities for COP26. If you had your moment on the stage at COP26 what would you say?
Each day will be fully packed with interactive sessions, live exhibition booths, and networking opportunities, with the audience addressing some of the most important issues in FCERM.
You can choose to purchase a delegate pass to attend the whole conference (VIP access to all sessions, networking and expo areas) or book one-day tickets to attend the sessions of most interest to you.
Visitor passes are also available for those interested in accessing the networking and expo areas only. There will be several opportunities throughout the day where visitors can interact with other delegates (in the morning, during the comfort and lunch breaks, as well as in the afternoon).
