Comming up: Climatecafe Malmo: 11-14 June 2019

JPI Europe projects MUFFIN, SURF and INXCES will hold their joined end project event in Malmo. Climatecafe Malmo will be held for capacity building and raising awareness.

Climatecafe Malmo

Climate change is making our living environment more vulnerable. We need to learn how to become sustainable and resilient. The Climatecafe is a interactive fieldwork based event with practical examples of climate adaptation. This is an multidisciplinary approach, bridging the gap between research, applicability and societal effects. We will raise awareness and show how research relate to (all) UN SDGs Sustainable Development Goals, exchanging knowledge with: >50 young professionals, >15 nationalities, >15 disciplines.

Climatecafe Malmo will give you: International networking with 9 European Universities and multiple disciplines. Hands on learning how to:

  • measure, map and scan sustainable urban drainage systems
  • demonstration and participation in full-scale infiltration tests
  • mapping of pollutants in SuDS
  • measure water quality with your phone
  • heat stress mapping

Present your results at the seminar of the JPI Water projects INXCES, Muffin and SURF. Your results will help stakeholders to develop and implement climate adaption measures.
