February’s Brownfield Land Scotland 2021 virtual conference

Event date: February 03, 2021

Event date: Wednesday, 2-3 February 2021

Dr Tom Henman, Director, RSK Geosciences, will take part in a virtual event hosted by Environment Analyst. The Brownfield Land Scotland 2021 event will take place in February and Tom will present a case study on a project that featured award-winning public engagement. Tom’s session takes place on the second day of the scheduled two-day virtual event. The online conference will, according to its website, provide attendees with “first-hand experiences and practical solutions specific to the management of brownfield and contaminated land in Scotland”. About 15 presenters will host segments that will be available to stream live online. Participants will be able to network with others face to face using the event’s virtual networking platform. To add an interactive element to the event, participants will be able to contribute to virtual face-to-face round-table sessions, enabling the discussion of relevant topics in a smaller, more participative format.

RSK’s Tom Henman will present on Wednesday, 3 February at midday. Titled “A Case Study: Effectively Communicating Land Contamination Risks & Engaging with Community Stakeholders to Achieve Successful Project Completion”, the 20-minute segment will examine the key principles of good practice for communicating land-contamination risk, illustrated by the Buchanan and St Ambrose schools independent review that won the 2020 Brownfield Award for Best Public Engagement and Participation. “I am looking forward to presenting on this important but often neglected topic,” said Dr Henman. “The case study that I am presenting will illustrate how exemplary stakeholder engagement, combined with a rigorous independent investigation, was effective in resolving concerns that had been raised about land contamination and possible health impacts at a major school campus in central Scotland.”
