Your Shore Conference 2020

1st February 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm



Join us for our 8th annual Your Shore Conference!

2019 has been an incredible year, with young people’s voices becoming both more urgent and important in the fight to protect their future, not to mention a huge shift in public consciousness and the kinds of conversations we’re having about our living planet.

As we move into 2020 – the fifth and final year of the Your Shore Beach Rangers project – we’ll be celebrating our brilliant Your Shore Network groups and awesome Beach Rangers, as well as looking to the future.

– What does the future of the marine conservation in Cornwall and the Your Shore Network look like?

– How can we continue to create opportunities for young people to get involved in marine conservation and encourage them to do so?

– What action can Cornish communities take in light of the ecological and climate emergency?
