We aim to bring together the professional marine community and communities along the English Coast. We want to do this by having a host of marine scientists and professionals walk stretches of the English Coastal Path and give talks in the villages, towns and cities they pass through. The idea is that by the end of 2021 the entirety of the ECP will have been walked by the marine community, with talks delivered in more than 180 locations. This will be achieved by assigning interested individuals to the stretches they want to walk and mapping our endeavours on an interactive map. Apart from giving talks, participants can also blog about their walks, sharing pictures and impressions and thus introducing the English Coast, its beauty and the challenges it faces, to a wider digital public.
