We each had stands to raise awareness of the HSBC Water Programme.  The event was held in the canteen at the Redcliff Quay office in Bristol and the footfall through the 3 hours was probably about 75-100 people.


I was able to talk to people about my involvement as a Citizen Science Leader and encouraged people to sign up to receive more information about the training.

The first italian sample!

Hi everybody! My name is Gianluca and I'm about to graduate in "prevention's techniques" at the University of Siena. Here I met prof. Steven Loiselle who let me know about freshwaterwatch. Together we've decided to achieve a graduation thesis based on the citizens' observatories for environmental monitoring, so I've become the first citizen scientist to takes samples in Italy for freshwaterwatch.

Kingston Urban Ponds

With Kingston ever growing population and demand for housing you will see in every new development area a man made pond.

To the average person it may just be a lovely comsetic insentive to live in that neighbourhood but it is much more than that.

Urban ponds assist with road and residential run off.

That means that it take on the excess water from your lawns and roads to help prevent things such as flooding.

The ponds are also good for irrigation which can help with green space growth but additionally they can assist in a better living environment.
