The event will feature a keynote presentation from Calum Maclean, a panel discussion, series of workshops, and manifestos for the future of Scotland’s COAST. The event builds on the West Coast Waters and The COAST That Shaped The World projects, and invites new ideas and opinions about Scotland’s unique geography where landscape meets seascape.
Calum Maclean is a writer, broadcaster and film-maker. He is best known for his social media videos and work on BBC ALBA, in which he shares his love for swimming in cold water, and looking beyond the obvious aspects of outdoor adventure.

He aims to teach people about the language and encourage other speakers to use it more often. An ambassador for the Outdoor Swimming Society, Calum is author of 1001 Outdoor Swimming Tips.
