WWT Sustainable Water Conference
It is a crucial time for sustainability in water: the government has issued its 25 Year Environment Plan, Water Resource Management Plans are being submitted, and we are in the midst of PR19 strategy.
Although there are still uncertainties, one thing is clear: the water industry must take responsibility for enhancing the natural environment and secure lasting change by strengthening partnerships, building resilience and driving green innovation.
The 2018 WWT Sustainable Water Conference will assess how we can progress with the government s plans, where the industry is staking its claims and how to make 2019 a year of action for the environment. Senior-level stakeholders will come together to debate the post-Brexit CAP, explore opportunities to deliver better local planning and reduce flooding, showcase sustainable water in action, and assess how to ensure that partnership working becomes business as usual.

- Hear how the water industry is responding to the government s 25 Year Environment Plan
- Find out how the post-Brexit CAP will affect agriculture in the UK
- Learn how the sector is planning to eliminate plastic waste
