We hope to enhance the value of intangible cultural heritage for future sustainability by brining back the historical knowledge and taste of local sustainable seafood to the Dublin people. We aim to raise the awareness amongst Irish people of being an Island nation with a wealth of food from the ocean around us.

During the course of the project we give seminars and take part in conferences and discussion rounds to present our project. Here you can find key presentations that we have given.

You can also find our peer-reviewed publications, the key deliverables and milestones of the project and additional funding we received.

Additional Funding

We successfully applied for additional funding from the Marine Institute under their recurring Networking & Travel Award scheme. This funding (NT/20/35) will contribute to our interactive, blend - in approach workshop series on sustainable seafood in close collaboratio with Eco-Unesco. Specifically, our cooking workshop (workshop 5) with Niall Sabongi will benefit from this additional grant. In this workshop, the recruited Eco-Unesco students will learn how to cook a three course meal from sustainable, locally sourced seafood.
