The Wellbeing of the Citizens of Leicester and Loughborough Depends on the Blue Economy
7 February, 2022 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Rear Admiral Nick Lambert
At 70 miles, the Ordnance Survey defines Coton in the Elms, Derbyshire as the UK’s furthest settlement from the sea. Leicester and Loughborough lie approximately 25 miles to the southeast and east of Coton in the Elms respectively; they and other Midlands populations including Nottingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Birmingham are at the heart of terrestrial UK. They all depend upon the marine environment and the Blue Economy to tackle the challenges of climate change and to derive the socio-economic benefit of the resources residing in our seas and oceans.
