Coastal Communities Adapting Together: Building climate action locally

The Coastal Communities Adapting Together project (CCAT) will hold its closure event to showcase the tools (such as geodesign workshops, educational resources, and participatory mapping projects) that were developed during the project to support coastal communities in Ireland and Wales understand climate change and how to adapt. The project developed a range of tools for engaging with local authorities, educators, young people, communities groups, policymakers and academics. The project partners will explore the challenges and opportunities of these tools as well as the impact of COVID-19 and the next steps.
