Sounding Coastal Change was an Open University Project based in North Norfolk. It’s alternative title was Listening to Climate Change, but the scope of the project widened to include coastal change in general. The project included public engagement activities, seminars and workshops. Social media was an integral part of the community engagement. The project has now evolved into two follow on projects; Sounding Out Wells and Making Sand Dunes Public.
