Turn the Tide! The third annual CITiZAN conference

31/10/2017   |   Lara Band

This weekend, the 28-29 October was the third annual CITiZAN conference. It was previously held in Bristol in 2016 by the South West team and Bridlington in 2015 by the North team. This year the South East team joined forces with the Thames Discovery Programme and through MOLA, who hosts both our projects, we held it at the Norton Rose Fulbright building on the banks of the Thames. A more glorious view of the Thames at night is harder to imagine that that from their balcony - see the photos of the Saturday night wine reception and launch of the Thames Discovery Programme book. The weekend was a great success: thank you to all our speakers, exhibitors and goody bag and raffle prize providers!

Read on below for a running commentry on the day, divided into Saturday (Thames Discovery Programme's day) and Sunday (CITiZAN's day) for ease of navigation!

Day 1: Saturday: Discovering the Thames!


Day 2: Sunday: CITiZAN and beyond!
