On 27 October 2022, the Policy Learning Platform is pleased to invite you to a workshop on natural and cultural heritage in coastal regions in Cagnes-sur-mer, France!

What it will be about

Coastal and marine regions are under numerous environmental and anthropogenic pressures, which have significant impacts on local natural and cultural heritage.

To tackle these challenges, European coastal regions and seas require a holistic policy response, which spans water management, ecosystem restoration, pollution control, climate change mitigation, sustainable management of fisheries, spatial planning, and cultural heritage.

Agenda 

27 October | Workshop on Natural and cultural heritage in coastal regions


Our thematic experts Astrid Severin and Magda Michaliková will moderate the workshop, which will be followed by a study visit and a networking cocktail.

Throughout presentations, interactive sessions, networking and study visit we will:

  • Highlight strategies and activities that help European regions and municipalities to preserve their maritime heritage and protect coastal regions from various environmental pressures such as overfishing, climate change or pollution,
  • Feature good practices, policy changes and a pilot action on the assessment of cultural heritage and innovative ways to make fishery heritage interesting and accessible,
  • Showcase the use of adaptation strategies to mitigate coastal erosion and strategies to tackle plastic pollution,
  • Put the spotlight on strategies to create a sustainable fishing industry.

28 October | Matchmaking session


The morning after the workshop, on 28 October, we are offering the possibility to organise two matchmaking sessions for participants that want to address a particular policy challenge. 

If you are interested in booking a matchmaking, please let us know in the registration form and our experts will get back to you! 

We will then discuss with you your particular needs and find the best peers to provide tailored and concrete answers to the policy challenges that you are facing in your region.
