The workshop Dredging & the environment will be held from 19 to 21 April 2016 in Gent (Belgium). This course gives a challenging view on the upcoming dredging and marine works and their interaction with the environment. Based on a series of illustrative running projects, the actual picture on the negative environmental impacts of dredging activities is shifted towards an inviting and inspiring search for global solutions and added value for the project’s ecosystem.
