Coasts for Comment - Celebrating Coasts and Stimulating Discussion
Wednesday 3 December
What and Who: An event to celebrate the efforts of coastal and marine conservation efforts and to raise awareness of critical issues
A range of speakers will present on topics including cooking foods from our coast, coastal climate change adaptation, Aboriginal connections to the coast, managing marine debris, balancing up aquaculture practices, and more. The event aims to challenge thinking, build knowledge, and inspire people to keep working together to care for our coastal and marine environments.
Special guest, award winning chef David Moyle, now at Hobart’s Franklin restaurant, will share his angle on sustainable foods from our coast as well as a culinary taster from our shores.
The Taroona Environment Network will lead walk along the Taroona Coastal Discovery Trail and Coastal Plant Totums to reveal the natural and cultural values.
