Sustainability is a huge puzzle that we can only solve by working together
“Our regions and local communities form the space where people meet with the seas and coastlines, both as nature and as the basis for homes and livelihoods.
From January 2020, the county councils of Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane will be merging to become a larger county council, Vestland. Vestland County Council will play a central role in ensuring a balance between the use and protection of our coast, now and in future.
The County Council is responsible for the further education of marine and maritime students. The County Council awards and manages the licenses for aquaculture, carries out regional planning for our coasts and inner sea areas, distributes grants for regional research, and supports the growth of the maritime and marine industries, clusters and innovation. It is the County Council as a political organ that has put climate and environmental protection at the centre of all activity in our region.
Sustainability is a huge puzzle that we can only solve by working together. Hordaland County Council is therefore proud to be one of the hosting partners for THE OCEAN 2019”
