Traditional piped drainage systems still have an important role to play in ensuring the resilience of our towns and cities. But they are now only part of the solution. This is why innovation such as drainage through a planted environment is now more important than ever before.

The conference presents an opportunity to hear about green infrastructure straight from experts in water management solutions and alternative green drainage. Delegates will discover how to build green infrastructure and InfraGreen systems into their schemes and projects.

Topics will include blue-green roof design, the value of landscape, passive irrigation, multifunctional benefits, and how to make cities smarter to combat the effects of climate change. There will be project case studies throughout the day, providing evidence of where green infrastructure has made a real difference.
