Sea Change

Three of our team members will attend an event in London next month that asks how Europe can deliver a successful network of marine protected areas.

The conference is called Sea Change: securing a future for Europe’s seas. If you’d like to join us at the conference, you can find out more here.

The UK government minister responsible for the marine environment, Huw Irranca-Davies MP, will address the event, along with speakers from Denmark, The European Commission, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, the UK and the USA.

The Times newspaper's ocean correspondent, Frank Pope, will be at the conference to interview speakers and delegates and to capture new developments, challenges and opportunities that we all face in securing a healthy future for our seas.

Delegates are invited from the fields of marine management, policy making, conservation, science, NGOs, industry, the voluntary sector and government.

The conference takes place over two days on December 8th and 9th at the Park Plaza Riverbank in central London.

It is being organised by Natural England and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, with support from The Crown Estate, Royal Haskoning and the Countryside Council for Wales.
