Waterways Forward features in Kingston University’s “Success Stories”

Waterways Forward

“Regeneration of existing waterways has wide-ranging benefits for sustainable place-making, with potential for wellbeing, biodiversity, low-impact transport, renewable energy, flood management, local food production, tourism, and social enterprise.”
Pat Brown: Director, Landscape Interface Studio, Kingston University

Following initial funding from Kingston University’s Enterprise Development Fund, the Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture’s (FADA) Landscape Interface Studio (LIS) has been closely involved in the development of the EU Waterways Forward (WF) project’s communication strategy, from its inception in September 2007, working with their client Canal and River Trust (formerly British Waterways).

“The appointment of the Landscape Interface Studio to support the Waterways Forward partnership brings an imaginative multi-disciplinary approach to spatial planning with new media communication.”
Glenn Millar: Economic Development Manager, Canal and River Trust, UK

LIS acted as communications consultants to the project delivering project outputs using multimedia formats including workshops, the development and management of a suite of social media sites, illustrated good practice guides and production of both interim and final project exhibitions.

The Waterways Forward Final Conference will take place on board the MS Renoir in Paris on 7 and 8 November 2012. The WF exhibition will be part of a European Commission briefing event in Brussels in December 2012. It will be available online and will be rolled out across Europe where it will provide a huge opportunity to promote the Waterways Forward project to the 27 EU member states.
