Rethinking Water Citizens’ Juries

The Environment Agency and its partners are holding a number of  Rethinking Water Citizens’ Juries to discuss the important question:

  • How do you connect with water in your local environment, and what needs to be changed in the future to benefit people and wildlife?

We rely on water every day and in many different ways. The first event will bring together a diverse range of people from the lower Tyne area to hear evidence, discuss the issues together, and produce recommendations for the future of water management in the UK. Your recommendations will be presented to our Environment Agency board, and will inform the Environment Agency’s developing approach to water management locally and nationally.

The information will also be used by The Water Hub to help develop new research and innovation.

The citizens’ jury will take place online (using video calls) in January 2021 over two Thursday evenings (January 21st and 28th, 7-9pm), and two Saturdays (January 23rd and 30th, 10am-12:30pm and 2pm-4:30pm).

There will be two more Citizen Juries in February and March next year. Please contact the Environment Agency to find out more: Toni Scarr antonia.scarr@environment-agency.gov.uk
