The increasing intensity of human activities along our coastline has a severe impact on coastal communities and natural habitats. The EC has adopted a renewed EU Sustainable Development Strategy. It aims at bringing about a high level of environmental protection, social equity and cohesion, economic prosperity and active promotion of sustainable development worldwide. There are multiple inter-linkages between the key challenges: for example between the use of renewable energy and climate change.
There will be 6 workshops to explore and discuss sustainability topics and criteria and methodologies for measurement of the indicators.
There will also be 6 inter-regional exchange visits which will complement the workshops by enabling partners to exchange their own experiences on sustainability issues allowing transfers of best practice where applicable.
Finally, all the partners will come together for a final international event in the UK in Autumn 2012. The results from the project will be disseminated at this event and an international audience of coastal stakeholders, politicians, decision makers will be invited.
