‘Sea change: securing a future for Europe's seas’ is a International Marine Protected Areas (MPA) conference organised by Natural England in partnership with the Joint Nature Conservation Committee and supported by The Crown Estate, Royal Haskoning and the Countryside Council for Wales. It will be held in the centre of London on 8 & 9 December 2009.
The conference is designed to stimulate debate and collaboration amongst European countries to ensure that we work together to deliver a successful network of MPAs, regardless of administrative borders. This conference offers a compelling programme of presentations, panel discussions and workshops. The UK Government Minister responsible for the marine environment, Huw Irranca-Davies MP, will address the event. Speakers are coming from Denmark, The European Commission, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, the UK and the USA.
