Socio-economic Empowerment of coastal communities as users of the sea to ensure sustainable coastal development


Our project will develop Transition Coastal Labs in six locations across Europe to create initiatives that will empower coastal communities to act for change to enhance the environmental, economic and social sustainability of the areas.

The results of this project will be made available through deliverables, publications, reports and open access data which will be added to the website as they become available.


The EmpowerUs resources include factsheets, press releases, newsletters and project videos. Resources will be added to the website as they become available.


The EmpowerUs consortium is led by Nordland Research Institute (NRI), Norway, and brings together 16 partner organisations from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Spain and the UK.
