Scientist and musician, founder of Plover Rovers, Scott Xavi Gudrich will talk about Saltmarshes, coastal management and Arts Based Research
In the talk, Scott will introduce the concept of “blue carbon” and talk about the potential that salt marshes have for the capture of carbon as well as for further climate change mitigation. Scott will specifically touch on the marshes around Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham which he did his research on.
Scott will emphasise the need to include local communities in the process of coastal planning, and then talk about the potential that ABR (arts-based research) has for making participatory processes more inclusive and how it might help inform policy and drive transformative change. For this, Scott will be drawing from his own experiences as a scientist and a musician. Arts-based research encompasses a range of research approaches and strategies that utilise one or more of the arts in investigation.
