South West Coastal Change Conference 2019

Date26 November 2019
Time9:30 to 16:30
PlaceMarine Station University of Plymouth

Organised and hosted by the Devon Maritime Forum, in partnership with the Marine Institute, Plymouth, this event offers an unrivalled regional opportunity to hear the very latest thinking on this critical issue and to contribute to the conversation.

What does it mean to manage our coast in the context of a climate emergency?  How much will sea-levels rise in the next 50, 100, 300 years?  Are we facing up to the inevitability of future coastal change?  Are existing policies and practice fit for purpose?  Where, how and when, should we think beyond ‘hold the line’?  What are the challenges and opportunities of working with natural processes at the coast?  How do we further integrate FCERM into Local Planning?  What are the relationships between the FCERM and the health and well-being agendas?  How, when and where can we better communicate and engage with impacted communities?

These are some of the questions we’ll be addressing at the inaugural South West Coastal Change Conference on the 26th November 2019 at the Marine Station on the shores of Plymouth Sound.  Organised and hosted by the Devon Maritime Forum, in partnership with the Marine Institute, University of Plymouth, this event offers an unrivalled regional opportunity to hear the very latest thinking on this critical issue and to contribute to the conversation.
