You are invited to join the 2nd Dam Removal Europe Workshop.

The workshop is being held on the25th and 26th of September 2017 in Birmingham (UK).

The program for this occasion will focus on the technical and social challenges of dam and weir removal in the urban environment. The format of the workshop in a series of parallel session will allow delegates to pick the presentation to suit their particular interest. The wide range of speakers come from across the UK and the rest of Europe. The second day is given over to field trips to see the challenges of weir removal in the field.

The workshop is hosted by the Dam Removal Europe Programme, the Environment Agency and Severn Rivers Trust (as part of the Unlocking the Severn for LIFE Project - LIFE15/NAT/UK/000219). For more information on the content and registration please see the workshop flyer attached below. The registration will cover everything apart from accommodation & breakfasts on both days and dinner on Tuesday night. We have secured some rooms in the venue for attendees and there is a link in the attached information for independent booking.

Birmingham is located right in the centre of the UK, and Conference Aston Centre located right in the centre of Birmingham, getting around couldn’t be easier. For attendants coming by plane, Birmingham International Airport is only a 20 minute taxi ride. For those attendants coming by train, just 10 minutes’ walk from Aston is Birmingham New Street station, a major rail hub with direct lines to most major cities across the country, including Birmingham International Airport.
