What’s your vision for the future of our seas in the Outer Hebrides?
The United Nations World Oceans Day (8th June) is a day for humanity to celebrate the ocean. To mark the day, MarPAMM – Seas of the Outer Hebrides project is launching their latest film ‘Seas Our Future’. Watch this fantastic wee film with local presenter Kate Macleod and share your views on how we can protect our marine environment in the Outer Hebrides for generations to come!
Creative Carbon Scotland has been collaborating with the MarPAMM – Seas of the Outer Hebrides project since 2019, using creative approaches to explore communities’ visions for the future of marine environment in the Outer Hebrides, and is thrilled to have worked with UistFilm to produce this short film.
The film shares the key concerns identified by communities in the Outer Hebrides about their marine environment including:
Their need to balance looking after their seas with sustaining marine jobs
Addressing undesired changes in the marine environment including climate change, marine litter and pollution and the loss of animal and plant species (biodiversity loss)
Sharing knowledge, resources and information of the benefits that Marine Protected Areas bring to communities and nature
From 7-16th June MarPAMM & NatureScot will be surveying seabed habitats in waters off the west coast of Harris. The team will use a drop-down video camera to improve understanding of the distribution of seagrass, maerl and kelp beds, and mud habitats in the area. The results of the work will be relayed via the MarPAMM – Seas of the Outer Hebrides webpage and be used to inform future discussions about marine nature conservation in the Outer Hebrides.
MarPAMM – Seas of the Outer Hebrides is part of our culture/SHIFT programme, which supports collaborations between arts and sustainability practitioners to address the climate emergency.
MarPAMM is a cross-border environment project, funded by the EU’s INTERREG VA programme, to develop tools for monitoring and managing a number of protected coastal marine environments in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Western Scotland.
