Coastal Challenge Summit 2018 – Report Now Available

On the 24th April 2018, three established coastal networks, the Coastal Partnerships Network (CPN), the Coastal Communities Alliance (CCA) and the Local Government Association Coastal Special Interest Group (LGA Coastal SIG) met at Europe House, Smith Square in London to explore common ground on coastal issues and joint opportunities for advancing the environmental, economic and social sustainability of our coastal communities. Attendance was cross-sectoral and multi-regional, with 70 delegates present. These consisted of representatives from Coastal Partnerships, Coastal Community Teams, Local Enterprise Partnerships and Local Authorities, alongside other coastal stakeholders. This was the first English Coastal Challenge Summit hosted by the CPN, in association with the CCA and LGA Coastal SIG. Bringing together the experience, influence, enterprise and ambition of these varied coastal groups, the Summit provided an opportunity to begin new conversation surrounding innovative and collaborative ways of future working.

A report with the outcomes is now available to download below, together with a one page summary:
