We would like to welcome Michael Green MSc, MCIWEM to the team as Senior Restoration /NFM consultant!
Michael is an advocate for nature-based solutions which deliver multiple benefits for people and the environment – and believes that the two are not mutually exclusive.
He previously worked for cbec in 2016, as lead author of the Natural Flood Management Toolbox, a seven-step guide to scoping and implementing NFM schemes, and is excited at joining cbec again. Michael holds an MSc (Distinction) in Integrated Management of Freshwater Environments from Queen Mary University of London, where he specialised in river restoration and fluvial geomorphology.
Michael previously worked at an interdisciplinary engineering consultancy, delivering the assessment and design of flood management schemes, green-blue infrastructure and Sustainable Drainage Systems to hold back and treat stormwater, as well as hydraulic modelling and GIS. He has also worked at a Lead Local Flood Authority in London (Southwark Council), developing and raising funds for projects, as well as providing advice to the Local Planning Authority on flood and water management.
Outside of work, Michael is involved in nature conservation and education and is a volunteer Ranger with London National Park City, leading guided walks and workshops on wild fungi and plants.
