The River Restoration Center Annual Network Conference

The River Restoration Center Annual Network Conference 2022

  • Ecosystem Restoration

The RRC Annual Network Conference captures a wide range of presentations to provoke thought and discussion on how we manage our rivers and catchments, how we restore natural processes, and how we engage with rivers.

We have suggested the following themes based on our understanding of key priorities and needs, and the audience feedback from the last RRC Conference. Abstracts and themes in addition to these areas below will also be considered. These are to guide you to what we feel will inspire an exciting two days:

  • Nature recovery: embedding river and floodplain restoration
  • Sustainable farm businesses AND river & catchment restoration: engaging and supporting farming communities
  • Engaging the public: collaboration with volunteers and young people
  • Nature-based solutions: innovative river and floodplain restoration
  • Citizen science: mobilising local passion for the water environment
  • Measuring success: monitoring and evaluating change from restoration
  • Restoration at a catchment-wide scale: from planning to implementation
  • Biodiversity net gain: how it is delivering river improvement
  • Restoring natural function in urban rivers: constraints and opportunities
  • Building restoration capacity: meeting the need across four nations

Conference Format

The conference will include 15 minute in-person presentations as well as a half-day session of either a workshop or site visit. There will be a poster session and competition with a prize for the winner, voted by the delegates.

This year we are planning to hold the conference in-person, with one session available to attend online over the two days. Once we have produced the draft programme, we will advertise the online programme, alongside a programme for those attending in-person.

More information will be made available soon. Government Covid-19 guidelines will be reviewed throughout our planning process.
