Cadonia team will be attending and exhibiting at the International Symposium on Soil and Water Bioengineering in a Changing Climate, held on the 7th and 8th of September 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.
“The aim of the symposium is to present and discuss the possibilities offered by the technical discipline of Soil and Water Bioengineering to the ecological, economic and societal challenges faced within a changing climate. As a society are experiencing a period of uncertainty, in which we perceive that the solutions could come from finding a balance within our environment based on the sustainable management of our ecosystems, the restoration of their functionality and services, and the use of nature-based construction systems such as soil and water bioengineering techniques. It is envisaged that UK practitioners and researchers will foster a deeper and more meaningful relationship with their international counterparts at the symposium by sharing experiences around common areas of interest.”
The symposium has a scientific program, where researches and practitioners had the ability to submit papers for presentation at the symposium related to these thematic areas:
- River restoration and revitalisation
- Storm water management and rain gardens
- Regeneration of wetlands, reservoirs, and coastal areas
- Hydro forest restoration activities in mountain areas, slope stabilization
- Planning and restoration of urban and peri-urban areas
- Restoration of fire or drought affected areas
- Design, construction and restoration of linear infrastructure: highways, railways, and gas pipelines
- Restoration and remediation of land under extractive activities: mining, quarrying and landfilling
- Soil and Water Bioengineering techniques, materials, modelling, and design.
Soil and water bioengineering is a discipline that combines technology and biology, making use of plants and plant communities as building materials which can protect the soil and infrastructure as well as contributing to landscape development. It includes technical (protection and stabilisation), ecological (ecosystem restoration), landscape (improvement of landscape integration) and a consideration of socio-economic (efficiency and employability) aspects.
