A month ago on Saturday the 10th September there was a significant event due to take place for 16-25 people in Sussex organised by Wild Coast Sussex and Sussex Wildlife Trust at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. The Ocean Hackathon event was mentioned in my blog here and indeed it was included in the Argus Column. Tragically on the Thursday before the event the Queen died and along with many other items that were closed down, the Ocean Hackathon was temporarily postponed. This Sunday at De La Warr Pavilion Ocean Hackathon is due to take place and along with the image above the link for booking into the event is here. The text in the De La Warr website states
Do you feel passionate about your local coast and want to see local wildlife thriving?
Wild Coast Sussex is inviting 16-25 year olds to take part in our ‘Ocean Hackathon’; a chance for you to contribute to ongoing marine wildlife projects in Sussex. Workshop with us as we hack our way through current issues and find imaginative ways to tackle the big questions. Everyone is welcome to share their thoughts – there is no need for you to have any previous knowledge of ocean conservation!
10am-4pm, Sunday 16 October 2022
This is a free event, however booking is required. To book your place please click here.
It would be fantastic if people could attend the event and it will be very encouraging to get support from people at the Councils across the Sussex area and also the MPs. The two County Councils and Brighton and Hove City Council along with Rother Council could promote this event and the results and all of the Sussex MPs including Huw Merriman who represents Bexhill and Battle and Caroline Lucas who is the Green Party MP in our Nation and is based in Brighton, Pavilion. One of the significant organisers for the event is Chris Corrigan who I have known for many years.
