Disruptor Series: Futureproofing Water Infrastructure

Wednesday, 31st March 2021 1345hrs – 1530hrs

The UK’s water resources are coming under increasing strain, with population growth, economic development and climate change all contributing to an ever more precarious water supply. Possible solutions include more intelligent use of natural resources, major investment in water infrastructure and placing a greater emphasis on water planning and usage in new development.

We will gather major industry figures and visionary thought leaders to explore the steps we must take to ensure a secure and sustainable water supply. This webinar is a must for those wishing to understand how water issues will impact the property sector, and those wanting to get involved in the large scale investment needed to futureproof water supply in the UK.

Patric Bulmer,
Head of Water Resources & Environment

International Manager
Paul Hickey,
