New Webinars for Farmers in Nene & Welland Catchments

08 Feb 2021

Register now to get involved in a series of monthly interactive digital events for farmers in the Nene and Welland catchments.

We are delighted to announce that, despite the ongoing pandemic and restrictions, we are coordinating a new series of interactive webinars for farmers in the Nene and Welland catchments, alongside our partners at the EU's Water Environment Grant scheme.

2020 was a difficult year for getting people together, so we're trying something entirely new for 2021 with this series of monthly digital events, which are designed to keep the farming community in touch with our partners and up to date on new developments. Each will take place via Zoom for two hours, from 2pm, on the third Monday of each month, February through to May. 

We will be running the webinars as open space events which will allow for several presentations to occur simultaneously and for participants to move freely between the presentations as well as connect with one another in a ‘free space’ virtual room.


Dates and Themes are as follows: 

Monday 15th Feb - Updates from key partners 

Featuring updates from Natural England's Peter Brown, the NFU's Simon Fisher, and our own Helena Darragh on our Farming for the Future project.

We look forward to reconnecting with the farming community after such an awkward period, and bringing farmers back together in one setting to learn, discuss and inspire.
