As east-central Scotland's Local Coastal Partnership, the Tay Estuary Forum puts together a conference each year to reflect current issues within the coastal and marine environments at both a regional and national scale, with a Tay regional focus, attracting key stakeholders working within the Fife, Angus, Dundee and Perth & Kinross coastlines, and the adjacent offshore area. The TEF aims to incorporate elements of science, policy and management beneath an overarching theme, to give a variety of participants a platform to discuss and inform.

This year's programme includes topics on:

  • Onshore and offshore planning: Land use change and marine planning
  • Dundee Waterfront developments
  • Renewable Energy
  • Protecting coastal infrastructure
  • Local environmental initiatives
  • Coastal/marine research projects
  • Sustainable coastal communities and coastal identity
