Building resilience and creating connections

Location: Ormiston SWB Academy, Wolverhampton, WV14 0LN.

IWA and C&RT run the Annual Restoration Conference every year to provide support for waterway restoration projects. The 2020 Conference will focus on building resilience and creating connections to ensure our sector is stronger and more robust for the future. 

We are building the agenda for the day but have already secured Dan Francis from NCVO as a keynote speaker on Governance, the Heritage Volunteering Group to speak about unlocking our heritage volunteering potential and Liz Shaw from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to run a breakout session on funding restoration projects.

We will also be covering topics on diversity, engaging your local council and community engagement.  

The day will follow the same format as previous years with 3-4 main keynote speakers and 6 breakout sessions to choose from. More details on the full agenda to follow shortly!
