Save the Date – Transboundary Marine Spatial Planning Workshop

Category: Conference

Please join us for a virtual workshop that will explore issues and opportunities for transboundary marine spatial planning across the Irish Sea.

The Planning Team at Ulster University are leading an EMMF funded research project for the DAERA Marine Plan Team.

The project seeks to inform, debate and deliver knowledge exchange for stakeholders across the Irish Sea in relation to transboundary MSP within the context of a climate emergency, a biodiversity crisis and post-Brexit. We would love you to get involved with this workshop as we want to hear your thoughts on these important issues!
