NORA Outreach Working Group Shares Experiences in Developing Information Boards

The NORA Outreach Working Group invites you to join them for their third bimonthly meeting, the first after the summer break, in which experts from the UK and Germany will share their experience in developing information boards on the seafront. Bring along your ideas, enthusiasm and experiences to share. If you have yourself had experience developing information boards for events (e.g. seafood or sea front festivals and outreach events) please get in touch ( or and share a copy of the final poster/board, as it would be great to draw on a wider set of experiences.

Thank you in advance to our two speakers, Matt Uttley and Corina Peter.

Matt Uttley of the Essex Native Oyster Restoration Initiative (ENORI) will discuss ENORI’s experiences of designing and working towards the installation of a public information board. The process has been longer than expected and further delayed by Covid-19, but final installation is planned this year. Key considerations of the design and planning the build were target audience, board content, location, permissions required and building materials. 

Corina Peter from PROCEED will share her experience in developing Information boards about the oyster and its value for the biodiversity in the North Sea on the island of Helgoland. She will give some insights on the cooperation between research, tourism service, design agency and municipality to produce and set up these information boards.

The Outreach Working Group will develop a useful bullet point guide of factors to consider based on the discussion, which will be shared on the NORA website.

The meeting will take place on line at 10am CET/9am UK on Tuesday 6th October. Please contact the Working Group Chair Corina Peter on if you would like to receive the call in details.
