Stakeholder engagement


The project’s stakeholders are those who enjoy, live and work near our study sites, and those who are part of coastal communities up and down the Irish Sea coast. The stakeholder engagement team is reaching out to these groups, which include (but are not limited to) children and young people, organisations involved in the management and conservation of birds and habitats in coastal sites, landowners, and those with a casual interest in birds or biodiversity in their local areas.

An overarching goal of the project is to raise awareness of the potential impacts of climate change and our shared challenges and opportunities. The ECHOES team is engaging with existing groups through holding events such as talks and workshops, in order to build a picture of our current shared understanding, and to inform everyone about the activities and findings of the project.

The team is actively engaging with potential users of the ECHOES platform, especially coastal land managers and those making policy to protect these areas. The team works together with colleagues at Compass Informatics to gather ideas and requirements of these user groups to feed into the tools and information that will be made available through the ECHOES platform.
