About Sea Scotland 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.

SUPPORTING THE YEAR OF YOUNG PEOPLE 2018
This year the Sea Scotland Steering Group is working with Young Scot representatives as part of the Year of Young People (2018). This includes exploring ideas for improved youth engagement and ensuring the conference provides a platform for youth views on the marine environment, its development and governance.
Scotland’s first ever Year of Young People is happening in 2018. It aims to inspire all ages through its young people (8-26) by celebrating their achievements, valuing their contributions to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine on a local and global stage. Young people are at the heart of designing, developing and deciding what they want the year to be. The Scottish Government is working with youth partners and the events and tourism sector to deliver activities and experiences for communities across Scotland to enjoy and discover more about our amazing young people. You can find out more about the Year of Young People here.
