The Blue New Deal
The Blue New Deal is a UK-wide initiative, led by the New Economics Foundation and working in collaboration with a range of stakeholders, to support good jobs, increased economic sustainability and resilience for coastal communities through a healthier coastal and marine environment.
Free New Blue Deal workshop:
Tuesday 26 July 2016 – 12:00 to 17:00 University of Aberdeen
This one-day workshop is an opportunity to discuss Scottish coastal communities, coastal economy and marine environment.
It wants to bring together:
- Private, public, third-sector stakeholders representing coastal and marine issues in Scotland (incl. fisheries, aquaculture, energy, tourism, coastal management)
- Stakeholders representing the interests of Scottish coastal communities (including local councils, coastal partnerships, community groups, business networks)
You will talk about:
- What needs to happen to deliver a vision of good jobs and increased economic sustainability for coastal communities through a healthier marine environment
- Discuss how the Blue New Deal initiative can help strengthen existing efforts towards these goal
The output will feed into a UK-wide action plan, to be launched in autumn 2016.
