This is a sort of sister project to Hydrocitizens in so far as it is a large Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) project being pursued under the ‘Care for the Future: Thinking Forward through the Past’ Theme – one of four current AHRC themes that provide a funding focus for emerging areas of interest to arts and humanities researchers. Within Care for the Future, the project has been designed to respond to a highlight call on ‘Environmental Change and Sustainability’ - as is Hydrocitizens.

It also has a water focus as in

"The Power and the Water: Connecting Pasts with Futures is an environmental history initiative that focuses on environmental connectivities that have emerged in Britain since industrialisation.

Researchers from several universities have come together to study how our 21st century sense of place, livelihood and community has been moulded by our links to the environmental processes of rivers, constructed watercourses, energy systems and infrastructure. It is through these environmental connectivities that our local actions are linked to planetary systems.

You can follow the project on Twitter: @envirohistories. Alternatively you can sign up to our email list to receive automatic notifications of new blog posts.
