Following on from two successful Sea Scotland conferences, planning is underway for a third event in the conference series. Registration will be opening early in 2018.
The objectives of the Sea Scotland 2018 Conference are to:
- Explore the changing context of community engagement and empowerment in planning and decision-making in the marine area, including through the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, the Islands (Scotland) Bill 2017 and other developments.
- Promote methods for effective engagement and empowerment of communities in the stewardship of marine resources.
- As part of the Scottish Government’s ‘Year of Young People 2018’, provide a platform for youth views on the marine environment, its development and governance, and explore ideas for improved youth engagement.
