Calling All Flood Risk and Coastal Management Students and Professionals!

ALL students enrolled in subjects relating to Flood Risk and Coastal Management (FCRM), and young professionals who have been working in this area for no more than 3 years are invited to engage in the Flood and Coast YouTube Challenge.  In response to the severe flood disasters throughout the country in the last couple of years, Flood and Coast Exhibition and Conference was convened by the Environment Agency and has become the UK's largest gathering of FCRM professionals in an effort to make real progress into preventing and alleviating UK flooding and coastal erosion. The organisers would like to invite all students and young professionals enrolled on courses in these subjects to produce and submit a relevant, creative and interesting video to show on screen at:- 'Flood and Coast 2017', taking place in Telford, from 28 March to 30 March 2017.

Grant Collier, 1 of the event organisers commented:- "We are aware that there are a growing number of students and young professionals involved in Environmental, Flood and Coastal Risk Management courses and we are very keen to get them involved to hear their perspective and ideas for the future of flood prevention, risk and resilience."

Flood and Coast's YouTube challenge invites videos illustrating any aspects of Flood and Coastal Risk, Resilience and Response primarily relating to 1 of the main event themes:-

► Infrastructure.
► Community Resilience/People and Property.
► Changing Climate.

This is a perfect opportunity for students to get noticed and to engage with the visitors, speakers and exhibitors at the event who will include:- representatives the Environment Agency, local authorities, engineering consulting companies, utility companies, infrastructure owners, businesses, emergency services and community flood groups; all of which are also invited to attend.

There will be 1 winning video in each theme, and these will be shown on the event website and on screens at the event in Telford.

Each winner will be invited to travel to the event for 1 day and capture aspects of the event on film. Travel and subsistence will be paid for by the organisers.
