European Conference on Climate Change Adaptation
JPI Climate organises a European Conference on Climate Change Adaptation ‘Actionable Knowledge for a Climate Resilient Europe’ ECCA 2023 on 19-21 June 2023, in Dublin: bringing regional stakeholders (researchers, policy and decision makers) together around state of the art climate adaptation science and knowledge for a climate resilient Europe. In person event for up to 500 people with life streaming for online access and interaction.
- Sharing knowledge:
to include, for example, sharing research findings and local and community knowledge. Sharing knowledge across disciplines and across regions. Showing science at work. Demonstrating the power of education. A focus on digitalisation.
- Inspiring action for transformation:
to include, for example, action now and Future action. Adaptation solutions and co-benefits in terms of mitigation, social inclusiveness, biodiversity and sustainable development.
Opportunities including COVID recovery, prosperity and equality. Guidance on how to achieve transformation. Case studies showing good practice and lessons learned. Incorporating
behavioural social science.
- Creating connections and collaborations:
to include, for example, connecting stakeholders from research, policy, practice, the private sector and communities. Addressing inclusive adaptation action and participation. Effective ways of building partnerships and connecting with different research communities as well as stakeholders, including young people. Includes a focus on effective communications.
- Implementing action:
to include, for example, what is needed to make change happen, including financial and human resources, information and planning, leadership and skills. Could explore ‘the recipe’ for effective action, in the form of a blueprint or guidelines. Addressing lessons learned across sectors, regions, urban, rural etc.
Practitioners will have learnt how to and where to source trusted climate information in order to effectively implement successful climate adaptation actions. They will leave the conference with an expanded community network of fellow practitioners across the European regions for mutual knowledge sharing and support. As ECCA2023 organisers JPI Climate/MAGICA will contribute to a growing Europe wide community of practice.
MAGICA is an Horizon Europe Coordination and Supporting Action financed under the call HORIZON-CL5-2021-D1-01. The project is coordinated by CMCC Foundation and involves 24 different organisations aiming to create a multi-directional dialogue with different relevant social actors (from policy-makers to the younger generation) that will be enhanced through different international conferences, workshops and other innovative formats in order to inform citizens but also to detect the social needs concerning the transition to climate-neutrality and climate science, strengthening a community of practice built on trust and enabling climate action.
