What's on offer

Council leader Phélim Mac Cafferty said: “We’ve seen from TV series such as Blue Planet the wonder, importance and fragility of our marine environment. 

“Shoreham Port is a really important part of our local infrastructure, with its continued commercial success matched by its continued commitment to the environment.

"Sustainability week is a brilliant opportunity to learn about the action local residents and businesses are taking to create clean, sustainable marine businesses and restore the health of our sea and coastline. 

“From the Sussex Dolphin Project to sustainability tips for small and medium-sized businesses, there is inspiration for everyone to help create a cleaner, safer future. 

“There’s a chance to meet the key players restoring our undersea kelp forests and working on hydrogen as a source of clean energy. The city council is proud to be a leading partner in Hydrogen Sussex, a new energy group dedicated to creating clean, affordable hydrogen as an alternative fuel for our region.

“It’s all free and coming up next week, so get involved!”

Sussex Kelp forests

Brighton & Hove has signed up to the conservation of Sussex kelp forests as part of the Greater Brighton environmental pledges. Kelp, a type of seaweed that forms dense underwater ecosystems known as ‘kelp forests’, helps reduce the effects of climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
