What is ‘Sea Scotland’?
Sea Scotland is an annual conference series which has been held since 2016 and aims to bring together the marine community and facilitate debate on critical issues facing the marine environment in Scotland. It is co-ordinated by a Steering Group comprising Scottish Environment LINK and their Marine Group Members, Fauna and Flora International, Howell Marine Consulting, and the Universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh. Past Sea Scotland conferences have attracted a wide range of Scottish marine stakeholders, providing a multi-interest forum for dialogue and knowledge-exchange for progressive marine policy and management. More information on previous Sea Scotland conferences can be found on our website.
For its 6th edition, Sea Scotland 2021 aims to explore the relationship between communities and the ocean and reflect on the strategies and actions needed to tackle the intertwined nature and climate emergencies. We want to share the inspiring stories of communities across Scotland who are working to protect and enhance the marine environment. Through presentations and interactive discussion sessions, our conference aims to:
- Explore the role of communities in the priority themes of ocean recovery, the circular economy and climate change.
- Enhance the capacity of communities, including young people, to engage in transformative action to tackle the climate and nature crises
- Explore opportunities to build on new and existing initiatives to drive ocean recovery in Scotland
