Dynamic Dunescapes is a fantastic new partnership project to restore sand dunes across England and Wales for the benefit of people, communities and wildlife.  The project is big and ambitious - targeting some of the most important sand dune systems and working with schools and local groups, volunteers and visitors of all ages and abilities to create more bare sand, which will breathe life into the dunes and allow the threatened wildlife to flourish.  

The project partnership wishes to recruit a team of 7 experienced People Engagement Officers to deliver the extensive people engagement programme across England and Wales.  The posts will be hosted by project partners and based in the following project areas - Lincolnshire, Cardiff, Dorset, Cornwall, Devon, Lancashire and Cumbria.

The People Engagement Officers will champion public involvement with dunescapes and deliver the people engagement programme that comprises a range of activities including: dune dens (mobile interpretation developed by working with the community); citizen science and volunteering; youth involvement for example traineeships and work placements; local school partnerships; inclusion, with a specific emphasis on accommodating those living with dementia and their carers.

Dynamic Dunescapes (DuneLIFE) is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and EU LIFE (LIFE 17 NAT/UK/000570) and is a partnership between Natural England, National Trust, Plantlife, The Wildlife Trusts and Natural Resources Wales.
