Turning challenges into opportunities

Many flood events, droughts and heatwaves in different parts of Europe show that climate change will strongly affect our quality of life. 

  • Will climate change also affect my place?
  • Should we act already now? What are the best options?
  • Currently, we have more urgent problems to solve, like high unemployment, economic decline or the integration of migrants. How should we find the time for even more tasks?

However, climate change adaptation action can be a tool to not just making the city climate resilient, but to solve effectively also these other problems. Let's turn the need for climate change adaptation into an opportunity for creating a better quality of life and more attractive and strong cities.
