Dr Kate Baker, Research Fellow at The University of Exeter and Chair of the panel, writes, “The celebrated film ‘Blue Heart’ documents the power of local community in protecting the largest undammed river in the Balkans. After the film, there will be a discussion with local experts drawing on similarities between community action in the Balkans with projects closer to home; communities are central to any successful environmental project. As an individual, it is easy to feel disempowered by the various environmental issues we’re facing. However, by joining together and working as a collective, positive changes can happen. We hope this evening will inspire people to get involved in local projects to create a better environment for future generations.”
The panel will include Richard Higgs, programme manager of the Riverlands project at the National Trust, a new £10 million project to bring the UK rivers back to life; Minni Jain, director of the Flow Partnership, an NGO working on rivers in the UK with community collaboration; and Dr David Smith from South West Water Upstream Thinking project, which aims find natural landscape-scale solutions to improve water quality.
