Geovation Water Challenge winner: Sustainable Catchments

Well done to all the finalists who took part in the Water Challenge Geovation Camp held at Ordnance Survey over the weekend 4-6 March. Over the weekend the 10 invited teams used the Innovation = Problem x Solution x Execution equation to develop their prototype venture, using design principles and focus on how they could build a sustainable business model to take their ideas forward. The judging panel selected three finalists to be offered extras support and funding through the Geovation Programme. Sustainable Catchments (formerly Natural Flood Mitigation) is Steve Buss and Mark Fermor’s idea that will allow communities to employ natural flood mitigation to identify and build models of sustainable catchment opportunities which will #slowtheflow of flooding of communities downstream. The team who have catchment expertise and experience in building models will make information available via subscription or one off reports.
