Climate Cafe at City Screen in York.
Hosted by Yorkshire Flood Resilience and the University of Hull’s Energy and Environment Institute.
Join us at City Screen in York for a cup of coffee in our Climate Café - our short presentations will help get the conversation started.
Our Climate Café events are free to attend and open to anyone with an interest in flood resilience and climate change. They will focus on the increasing risk of flooding, and the significant disruption and damage it can cause, as well as highlighting the role that property flood resilience measures can play in minimising the risk of homes and businesses flooding.
Property flood resilience is a term used to describe measures that reduce the risk of flood damage to our properties, speed up recovery and help us to move back into our properties quicker after flooding. These measures are installed in our homes or businesses to make them less vulnerable to flooding.
The York event will take place at City Screen (off Coney Street) on Thursday 2 September and will begin at 5.30pm. It will feature a series of short presentations by experts on flood resilience and members of the public who have been affected by flooding. Free refreshments will be available and there will be an opportunity for people to chat with the speakers informally after the presentations. Although places are free, tickets must be booked in advance via Eventbrite - York Climate Cafe.
