Your Shore Conference 2019

We would like to invite you to the seventh annual Your Shore Conference, celebrating the achievements of the fantastic community marine conservation groups and brilliant Beach Rangers throughout Cornwall and the South west.

The aims of the conference are to:

– Strengthen the links between our network of local marine groups, with our Beach Rangers and with other conservation organisations

– Share ideas and best practice in practical conservation, engaging people, research and all the varied aspects of our work

– Inspire each other to continue developing and inspiring others to care for our coastlines and marine life

This year, we’ll also looking ‘Beyond the Wave’; after the increased wave of awareness and groundswell of support for conservation which

have resulted from Blue Planet II and the People’s Manifesto for Wildlife, how can we keep people’s attention on conservation and encourage them to take action?

– How do we reach those people beyond our conservation ‘bubble’?

– What are the obstacles to engagement and changing behaviour ?

– Can we use hot topics such as single-use plastics to raise awareness of other threats to our marine life?

A light vegan lunch and refreshments will be provided.

You don’t need to print your ticket, but do please bring a reusable cup and/or water bottle with you!

Arrival and registration will be from 09:00, with the day to finish around 17:00; a full programme will be sent to all attendees by Wednesday 27th February 2019.

The Conference is free for all delegates thanks to funding via the Your Shore Beach Rangers Project from the Big Lottery Fund.
