Traditional stake nets in the Solway

Scotland is not alone in facing pressures at the coast.  Europe's coastlines have suffered damage and environmental degradation as a result of development, pollution and climate driven coastal processes. In September 2013, we joined a group of young people from Scotland and across Europe who were learning campaigning and communication skills to encourage positive engagement with coastal issues amongst young European citizens. 

Inspired by the SCHARP project and ShoreUPDATE volunteering network, our young people had chosen our approach to dealing with eroding and vulnerable coastal heritage as a case study for their campaign. 

We spent a glorious few days with the group investigating and filming the coastal heritage of the Solway coast.
