SEA CHANGE is one of the events which forms part of Blackpool’s three piers World Monuments Fund ‘Watch Status’, which focuses on heritage assets at risk from climate change. Anya helped Blackpool Council bid for ‘Watch Status’ and has been involved in delivering previous events such as the ‘Big Pier Watch Day’ in June 2018, which was attended by over 6000 people. Bournemouth University is the exclusive academic partner for the SEA CHANGE conference and we look forward to welcoming practitioners and researchers from a variety of backgrounds and academic disciplines to contribute in tackling the threat of climate change to coastal heritage.
