Climate change means that we have to prepare our cities for heavy downpours and flash flooding. Rainwater solutions are not just about enigeering, they can also add value to cityscapes. Sustainable, landscape-based rainwater handling can bring nature back in our cities and create new meeting places and spaces for activities.
Part of The Liveable City – A Danish-British Dialogue in Manchester – a celebration of architecture and urban planning. In partnership with the Manchester School of Architecture and RIBA North West, the Danish Embassy invites businesses, politicians, professionals and the general public to take part in a number of seminars focusing on different aspects of liveability.
