Explore the diverse views and values of communities in these insightful films from our amazing coastal communities.

About the films

We've been working with communities in Shetland, Portsmouth and the catchment of the River Severn to capture local stories of value and connection. This is part of a large UK Research and Innovation project led by the Universities of Portsmouth and Greenwich.

Drawing on our experience using the Community Voice Method, we have made 3 films which were screened at local community workshops to engage the wider community in conversations about the future of their coast and sea.

Two films are linked below, with the third to be added later in the year.
