Council and Gwynedd County Council in Wales teamed up for
a 3-year Ireland/Wales EU Interreg 111A partnership project,
to raise awareness of their marine and coastal environment.
The project acted
as a pilot scheme for both Wales and Ireland and aimed to
develop a comprehensive coastal education and awareness programme
that can be implemented by County Councils, NGOs and
A variety of
educational and promotional materials were developed such
as a documentary video on the Fingal Coast, guided walks and
events; road-shows; a theatre project, interpretative signage,
school projects and the development of educational material.
The Living Coast - Living Sea project also included
several studies such as audience research and two marine habitat
It is envisaged that these educational materials will help
to stimulate an appreciation for the coastal environment which,
in turn, will lead to better protection of designated areas
and coastal biodiversity in both Wales and Ireland.
