ReMeMaRe 2024

 We look forward to welcoming you to the Restoring Meadow, Marsh and Reef (ReMeMaRe) 2024 conference. Bringing together restoration practitioners, Government bodies, environmental Non-Government Organisations (eNGOs), industry and businesses, from across the United Kingdom, with a shared vision to restore our estuaries and coasts. Providing a welcoming space for knowledge exchange and discussion on the latest developments in coastal restoration science, practice, and policy.

Following feedback last year, we will be extending the event this year, to give us a day and a half of inspiring talks and networking opportunities to maximise its value to participants. We hope you will join us.

ReMeMaRe Session themes

1.       Restoration in Action

We want restoration projects across the UK to share their experiences – good and bad, to help us all develop best practice. This session will showcase pioneering examples of restoration on the ground.

2.       Investing in Restoration

We know that securing funding is one of the main challenges to restoration, therefore this session will discuss business needs and what we need to boost investor confidence in estuarine and coastal restoration.

3.       Restoration through collaboration.

Exploring how working in partnership brings multiple benefits to restoration. Whether through working with communities and using citizen science approaches, with the additional societal well-being this participation provides, or between organisations and sharing resources to achieve common goals.

4.       Science

During this session we will host talks that present the most recent scientific findings relating to the ReMeMaRe focus habitats (oyster reefs, seagrass, saltmarsh/es, kelp), that are of relevance to informing and delivering restoration at scale.

5.    Evolving policy and regulation

This session will focus on what evolution is necessary in policy and regulation to enable projects to accelerate their delivery, so we achieve our ambitious restoration targets.
