Scotland’s Flood Risk Management Conference 2021: FRM and green recovery

Mon 1st February 2021 - Fri 5th February 2021, Online

We are living in a period of rapid social and structural change and the future seems less certain than ever. COVID–19 has highlighted vulnerabilities and inequalities in the systems and structures upon which our society relies. We are seeing the tremendous value of using science well to inform decision making but also the importance of creative approaches and thinking differently.

After a year of working in isolation there is also a growing momentum to build back better. FRM 2021 will be a safe opportunity for the FRM community to come together to share knowledge and best practice. We’re certain it will inspire and equip you to drive the work ahead, no matter what challenges we face.

We believe that the traditional format of a 2–day event action–packed with speakers would be overwhelming in a virtual setting so have planned a conference programme over 5 days – featuring 2–3 hours of content per day, starting at 10:00 each day. Each day will be dedicated to a different theme of interest to the flood risk management community and wider society and will feature a mix of presentations, Q&A sessions, panel discussions and workshops, including creative break–out sessions offering the chance for the community to work together to re–imagine new solutions to the challenges that face us.
