PhD Student Article on Reducing River Pollution published in The ConversationPhD Student Article on Reducing River Pollution published in The Conversation
Samantha Richardson, one of our PhD students based at the University of Hull, has published an article outlining four ways we can all help to reduce pollution in our waterways. This article has been published in The Conversation, the online source of informed articles and commentary written by researchers and academics, across all disciplines, for the public in the UK and globally.
Samantha works on our ‘Changing Citizens’ Behaviour’ work package and is currently developing a tool that we will use with volunteers to check for the presence of certain Watch List chemicals in selected waterways. This tool will also be tested by partners working on the Interreg NSR-funded Nuredrain project.
As part of this work package, we are also running a communications campaign to raise awareness about about how our consumer choices could be having an impact on the health of our rivers and canals. This article is the first major element of this campaign.
