This conference is open to anyone with an interest in Somerset's Brilliant Coast. A day of inspirational talks and discussions to:

  • celebrate the first yearof SWT's Somerset's Brilliant Coast project
  • Showcase the amazing diversity of our coast and some of the great work that has been going on to protect it
  • Explore some of the threats, global and local, that are facing it

Along with our partners and stakeholders, we will be asking what your concerns are and signposting ways you and your communities can address the challenges facing the coastal and marine environment in Somerset and beyond.

There will be the chance to sign up for exciting projects that are coming up. It’s time to turn the tide!
