Three, Free Webinars

In lieu of our Spring/Summer Conference 2020, the DMF in partnership with Natural Devon will be organising and hosting a short series of Summer Seminars.   The THREE seminars will focus on: i) Blue Recovery; ii) The State Of Devon’s Seas; iii) Blue Carbon.  These FREE, on-line, bite-sized seminars will pack a lot into their 60 minutes, and will be a mixture of short presentations, Q+A, and discussion.  Further details below.

 

Summer Seminar 1:  Blue Recovery

  • Date: Wednesday 15th July 2020
  • Time: 11.00am – 12.00pm (1 hr)
  • Place: On-line
  • Number of tickets available: 35

As we begin to think and move beyond our initial response to the recovery stage of the COVID-19 crisis, many environmental NGOs, economists, health professionals and the government’s own statutory advisers have been calling for a ‘green recovery’ to address the linked challenges of public health and well-being, the climate emergency, and biodiversity loss.

In a similar vein, for a county like Devon and a region like the South West, we might also want to think and talk about the notion of a ‘blue recovery’: what that might entail and look like, and how we can collectively plan for and enable a happier, healthier, cleaner, greener marine.

The first of the DMF/LNP’s Summer Seminars will focus on the idea of a Blue Recovery.
