Blue New Deal workshop

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.
