EARC Conference 2022: The Collaborative Coast

The coast defines our region. Stretching from the Wash in the north to the Channel in the south, it offers huge opportunities – but also significant challenges.

Our conference this year will take place on 22 September, and will be a chance for academics and regional stakeholders to come together to discuss key questions facing the coast, from addressing health inequalities to preparing for climate change, from harnessing renewable energy to supporting our creative community. 

Together, we will identify the issues, make connections and start to develop solutions.

We want to hear from both academics and stakeholders who can lead us in this. Your insights and position of knowledge can take many forms, from those with lived experience within the community, to those with practical expertise in private, public or third sector organisations, to researchers and academics who have studied the issues in depth.  

If you would like to lead one of our eight parallel sessions, please provide some simple details using this form. The deadline is 30 June 2022. 

The conference will open for registration in August.
