Lasting a Lifetime

By engaging with our communities we aim to influence behavioural change culturally, changing the attitudes of people across the University by teaching sustainable practices that can be taken far beyond their time at the University.

The River Eden Demonstration Test Catchment (EdenDTC) is a Defra funded research project. The aim of the project is to assess if it is possible to cost-effectively reduce pollution from agriculture, whilst maintaining agricultural productivity.
