Description de l'événement
As climate change unfolds, the water cycle changes leading to both water shortages and floods.

À propos de cet événement

Why does that happen and what concrete actions can we take to mitigate and to adapt to those changes?

​Don’t worry! We’ll answer those questions in depth in this workshop.

In this two day intensive and hands-on, we will demystify the changing water cycle and look at why those changes are happening. We also learn how to analyze how our site of choice responds to theses changes and how to build flood management systems that are adapted to our site caracteristics and needs, whether urban or rural.

Topics covered in this course:

  • Why are there more floods?
  • How does our home, city or farm receive and manage these flood waters?
  • What are the natural systems that reduce and manage floods?
  • How do we observe and design our site to be resistant to floods and utilise the water resource to benefit our resilience in case of drought?
  • What are the techniques that we can implement at home?

A main portion of this course will be observing a real landscape and designing collectively the systems needed to mitigate floods. We will then dig / build/ implement a hands on solution that you can do at home
