Marine Energy – Education Development and Fisheries Diversification

Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum, through their Marine Energy Pembrokeshire work-stream, aims to raise awareness of the recognised marine energy potential of the sea surrounding Pembrokeshire and in particular focus on forthcoming opportunities for socio economic benefit. This project will engage with young people in one of the county’s secondary schools and the local fishing community to raise awareness of potential involvement and opportunity associated with the developing marine renewable energy industry. Funding would assist delivery of:-

  • a new education programme providing information on renewable energy and promoting upcoming career opportunities in the marine energy industry. This will enable students to make informed choices regarding their subject options and future career path. The programme will be delivered during geography lessons and will be linked to the National Curriculum and local future industry needs.
  • two stakeholder engagement events with the fisheries sector to improve future livelihood prospects by explaining possible diversification options associated with the Pembrokeshire Marine Energy Wave Demonstration Zone and marine energy industry in the area.

Early engagement is considered essential to ensure that local communities are in a strong position to take advantage of opportunities and reap potential benefits.

Project Total Cost: £10,287.00
