First iCASP podcast – Helping the local environment, a settee seminar

We’re really excited to have produced our first podcast about our work, which will be featured in the 5th series of the Settee Seminars, with a focus on the environment and climate change this year and is part of the Ikley Literature Festival.

Two of our Impact Translation Fellows – Drs Jenny Armstrong & Tom Willis – talk about how our projects are making a real difference to the region – and explain about the mapping work we are doing at Backstone Beck to assess the effectiveness of the natural flood management on the moor & help reduce flood risk.

This was new territory for us and a chance to reach out to a new audience to explain about our work.

We’d also like to mention Bradford Council who have been part of the monitoring set up on Backstone Beck by  as part of the Interreg North Sea Region Programme SCORE project. Fixed post photography installations also provided by SCORE so the public can help document changes on the moor.

We are very grateful to the Ilkley Literature Festival Team for their technical support with making the podcast – and for inviting us to have a go. Hope you enjoy it!–Helping-The-Local-Environment-e1kfpgb/a-a860b8i
