The Resilient York: Sustaining an historic city through flooding & beyond conference will take place in the University of York’s Department of Archaeology at King’s Manor on Friday 4th November 2016.
Following York’s experience of major flooding last December, this day conference brings together speakers from local and national organisations to look at how we can be better prepared for the future risks facing York’s historic centre. Can we work strategically and locally to create a more resilient city by adapting, preparing and conserving to better protect York’s vulnerable heritage?
The event will focus on sharing ideas, planning and experience around ways for the civic and research community to work together to create a more resilient city. Can we better equip the citizens of York with information and appropriate expectations about likely flooding events and other disasters in the future? Are there low-cost preventative and practical measures we can explore to protect the city’s heritage and its communities?
The day will end with a roundtable discussion with speakers to identify actions and next steps.
Registration for the Resilient York 2016 Conference is now open. Tickets are available to purchase via Eventbrite.
