How time flies when you’re having fun! On Saturday 2nd March we held a celebration event to mark the first anniversary of the project. At the event we launched our project documentary, community map and oral history interviews.
Many thanks for the 100 people who came along and helped to make it such an enjoyable day. Our documentary film, which charts what we have been up to over the last year, as well as local people’s vision for the future of our shoreline, was very well received. We are delighted to be able to share it with you now! Just follow the link to see why the Edinburgh shoreline is so special:
Our sincerest thanks go to both René Sommer Lindsay, who gave an interesting talk on how Copenhagen is adapting to climate change, and Emily O’Brien, who spoke about the work of Seafield Shoreline who are improving planting and habitats in Seafield, Edinburgh. Thanks also to Dr Larissa Naylor (University of Glasgow), Ben Macpherson MSP and Paul Lawrence (City of Edinburgh Council) who took part in a panel discussion on the future of our coast – thank you all for taking time out of your weekends to speak with local community members who hugely value the area where they live and work.
We will be launching other outputs from the event, such as our community map, soon so please keep an eye on the website!
