Blue Green City of the Future
Hello! This week we’re off to Hull to discover how the Living With Water partnership is working with the community to build a “blue green city of the future.”
We’re joined by two key members of the partnership’s team – Lee Pitcher and Andrew Barron – who share insights into the challenges and triumphs of flood mitigation and adaptation in one of the UK’s most at-risk areas.
Listen in to hear how personal experiences of homelessness and the destruction that flooding can bring, led to our speakers’ shared passion for this project. Learn how the people of Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire are collaborating and co-creating to turn the threat of too much water into an opportunity to improve and develop green spaces within the area. Be inspired by a project which spans generations and focuses on working with nature, rather than fighting it.
