The changing coast: sharing knowledge and practice

SCRR / Coastal Forum workshop

November 2, 2018

Venue: Technology & Innovation Centre, Glasgow

UPDATE: please see below for event report.

In November 2018, the Coastal Forum and the Scottish Consortium for Rural Research held a one-day workshop during the Annual Science Meeting (ASM) of the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS).
The workshop brought together coastal scientists and rural researchers to provide an opportunity for new collaborations and partnerships.

Coastal areas face complex challenges and this was reflected in the breadth of workshop presentations, ranging from Scotland’s upland beef farmers to climate change impacts on Vietnam’s vulnerable coastal communities.

The final session was a lively discussion about a coastal observatory as a potential way to provide and share data on coastal environmental change.
