EARC Conference 2022 – Keynote – A new vision for our coast

Venue: Garden Suite (Hooper, Woods and Grove)

Much of the narrative around the regeneration of coastal towns is based on a historic view of their prosperity, focusing on the economic high water mark of the late nineteenth century.

In his keynote, Jules Pretty OBE will suggest that future prosperity will not come from this model, which sees the sea as a barrier and a problem for movement and growth. Rather, we need to face out, seeing the sea as a unifier, bringing together communities with similar locations around the southern North Sea and beyond.
