The Water Environment- Challenges and Opportunities

The Water Environment- Challenges and Opportunities

Friday 12th June @ 10:00am

Rethinking Water –the Challenges and choices

Climate change is impacting our water environments. We need to ensure our rivers are healthy and there is plenty of clean water for people and nature.

 We all depend on water. We urgently need to protect and improve our waters and find a better balance that meets the needs of people and nature.

We will discuss the value of water, our rivers, lakes, canals, coasts and groundwater with people whose work is all about improving the environment.

We want to listen to you to hear your thoughts on the challenges and choices that threaten the water environment so please click on the link to share them with us. https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/environment-and-business/challenges-and-choices/

Climate Change is affecting us all. You can help make a difference protecting communities and the environment from the risk of flooding through engineering solutions.

Brunel University London has partnered with the Environment Agency and HR Wallingford to offer a sponsored degree in Flood and Coastal Engineering. The two year Flood and Coastal Engineering foundation degree with top up BSc combines academic study with hand-on experience including two six month placements with the Environment Agency and a summer school hosted by HR Wallingford.  The Environment Agency will pay your  tuition fees and a £1000/month training allowance when on placement.

The programme is designed to train you to be ready for work in the flood and coastal sector and provides the opportunity to extend your studies to Bachelors and Masters Level.

  • Jeanette Wooster

    Catchment Co-ordinator

    I’m a Catchment Coordinator for the Environment Agency in Thames Area. I work with Catchment Partnerships and communities to improve the water environment. I currently work in the Evenlode catchment. I’ve worked for the Environment Agency for over 20 years.  I started with the Environment Agency after completing an Environment Management MSc.  Initially I worked as an Environment Officer in waste regulation.  I then specialised in agriculture and farm inspections.  After this I moved to an advisory role working with farmers to reduce pesticide runoff into watercourses. I’ve been doing my current role since 2014.

  • Paul Cross

    Chartered Water and Environmental Manager and Chartered Scientist

    Graduating from the University of Hertfordshire with a Geography Degree, I knew I wanted to work within the environmental sector, but less certain in what area. I chose to work for the Environment Agency initially because of the technical breadth of the organisation. I have now worked for the Environment Agency for 15 years and have held many technical and leadership roles during this time. In my current role, I focus on ensuring the organisation and its partners has the right people, with the right skills, in the right location, at the right time, to face the challenges of today and the future.

    I am a Chartered Water and Environmental Manager and Chartered Scientist. Previously sponsored by the Environment Agency to complete an MSc in Water and Environmental Management. The organisation continues to invest in my personal and professional development, and I am currently a Level 7 Senior Leader Apprentice, working towards an MBA at Hertfordshire Business School.

  • Joanna Heisse

    Biodiversity Technical Specialist

    I have worked at the Environment Agency for 16 years, almost all of that time spent working in biodiversity, protecting and enhancing wildlife. During my time there I have worked on projects to protect species such as otters and water voles, I have helped bring rivers back to life by breaking them out of concrete, influenced developers to make sure that the largest developments along the Thames help wildlife and tackled invasive non-native species that are damaging our rivers and wetlands. I started at the Environment Agency after a degree in Biology and an MSc in Nature Conservation, followed by ecological consultancy work and have progressed in the team to become a Biodiversity technical specialist.

    I am currently taking a break from working in Biodiversity by leading the Environment Agency’s Women’s Network. My role is to help encourage, enable and equip women to achieve their full potential in the workplace by supporting initiatives such as mentoring, supporting our flexible working policies, supporting parents and challenging bias.
