‘The Collaborative Coast’: Resources from the EARC Conference 2022

This year our conference was focussed on our coast. Stretching from the Wash in the north to the Channel in the south, it offers huge opportunities – but also significant challenges.

Our conference was 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.

160 delegates joined us at Wivenhoe House Hotel on the University of Essex campus. They came from the three EARC universities, but also from local authorities, NHS Trusts, charities, funders and other organisations.

Together, they heard about a diverse range of initiatives and projects, engaged with each other and explored ways forward in collaborating for the benefit of our coast. This page brings together the slides, recordings, photos and other resources that came from the Conference.
