Canal Boat - - News -

THIS YEAR’S LIV­ING Wa­ter­ways Awards have been launched with the Canal & River Trust call­ing for wa­ter­way or­gan­i­sa­tions and groups across the UK to put for­ward their in­no­va­tive and in­spi­ra­tional projects for con­sid­er­a­tion.

Led by an in­de­pen­dent panel of ex­perts drawn from the vol­un­tary, en­vi­ron­men­tal, arts, her­itage, en­gi­neer­ing and ar­chi­tec­ture sec­tors, the awards cel­e­brate the work done by in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties and or­gan­i­sa­tions to im­prove their canals and rivers, mak­ing them ex­cit­ing places to live, learn and spend time.

From in­spi­ra­tional sto­ry­telling to ded­i­cated vol­un­teerled schemes; in­no­va­tive de­sign and con­struc­tion projects to pi­o­neer­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal ini­tia­tives, there are seven award cat­e­gories up for grabs: 1. Art & In­ter­pre­ta­tion 2. Con­tri­bu­tion to the Built En­vi­ron­ment 3. Com­mu­nity & Vol­un­teer­ing 4. Education & Learn­ing 5. Nat­u­ral En­vi­ron­ment 6. Recre­ation & Tourism 7. Restora­tion & His­toric En­vi­ron­ment

The clos­ing date for en­tries is Tues­day 15 March 2016. Fur­ther de­tails can be found at canal­rivertrust.org.uk/liv­ing­wa­ter­ways-awards-2016.

The win­ners of this year’s awards, which are spon­sored by Keir, Ar­cadis, CPC Civils and Foun­tains, will be an­nounced at a cer­e­mony in Birm­ing­ham on 14 Septem­ber.
