Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum – one year on
Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum
By: Alex Cameron-Smith – Stakeholder Engagement Coordinator for Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum
Since Great Big Green Week last year, PCF has been delivering various climate adaptation projects, including:
- Using our innovative card-based tool in school workshops to determine which climate impacts are most important to students, and what actions they want to see in their local area.
- Working with people across Pembrokeshire in partnership with Netherwood Sustainable Futures to produce the County’s first ever five-year Climate Adaptation Strategy.
- Facilitating a series of Task & Finish groups for the Newgale Coastal Adaptation Scheme, ensuring local voices, ideas and concerns form part of our County’s response to a changing coastline.
On the mitigation side, PCF has also received funding from the Welsh Government and Swansea Bay City Deal for our decarbonisation initiatives. Marine Energy Wales has recruited new team members to help kickstart floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea, and the Marine Energy Test Area – Wales’ first and only centre to test marine renewable technology – has also created four more local jobs.
PCF has been a Climate Cymru partner since 2020, helping to share knowledge, raise awareness of the important role coasts and oceans can play in a sustainable future, and build capacity for action on a wider scale. We hope you’ll join us!
