Event The International Mid Term SAND Conference: 'Towards sustainable mineral extraction along rivers aiming at flood damage prevention'

This conference is presented by SAND, a project funded by INTERREG III B for Spatial quality enhancement, Alleviation of flood damage and Nature enlargement by Development and redevelopment of mineral extraction sites along rivers. As partners in the SAND-project we will carry out a brief midterm evaluation of the SAND project prior to the conference and present it’s results in Bergheim. External parties are welcomed to participate in this evaluation. The morning and early afternoon sessions on 19 March will be plenary: brief introductions by the selected speakers will be followed by round table discussions during which selected participants sit at the round table on stage (approximately 4 people) and discuss preselected items guided by the moderator. All sessions will start with a speaker from one of the SAND pilot projects, followed by an external speaker who reflects outside-in on the project. The audience will be invited to actively participate in the discussion. During these sessions the items for the afternoonworkshops will be identified and pinpointed. See the second announcement.
