SPONSOR SEA SCOTLAND!
Sea Scotland is a fantastic opportunity for marine-related organisations to showcase their work and raise their profile to a specialised and engaged audience, and the conference itself wouldn’t be what it is today without the past sponsorship it has received. With numerous benefits and opportunities for profile, sponsors will also find themselves front-and-centre of the informal networking sessions with exhibition space in the common area. Find out more and apply to be a Sea Scotland sponsor today!
About the Sea Scotland conference series
The annual Sea Scotland conference provides a multi-interest forum for Scotland-focused dialogue and knowledge-exchange for progressive marine policy and management. The conference aims to bring together bring experts and stakeholders to generate and share innovative thinking in order that Scotland addresses challenges of managing activities within its seas sustainably.
The Sea Scotland series is now approaching its 5th year. The conference in 2020 will build on the events of 2019, 2018, 2017 and the inaugural Sea Scotland 2016 conference to bring together a range of national and international marine interests and seek to respond directly to the heightening narrative around the global climate and biodiversity crises.
In 2018 the Sea Scotland Steering Group worked with Young Scot representatives as part of Scotland’s Year of Young People. This included exploring ideas for improved youth engagement and ensuring the conference provides a platform for youth views on the marine environment, its development and governance. Discussion focused on the role of communities and young people in decision making for your seas. In 2020, we will seek to foster collaborations in relation to Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters.
The conference is a partner-driven initiative involving Fauna and Flora International, Ocean Dialogues Ltd., Scottish Environment LINK, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), and the Universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
