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. Climatecafe is an multidisciplinary approach, bridging the gap between research, applicability and societal effects. Climatecafe Malmo raised awareness telating to (all) UN SDGs Sustainable Development Goals, exchanging knowledge with: >25young professionals, >10 nationalities, >15 disciplines.

Climatecafe Malmo was organised with 9 European Universities engaging with multiple disciplines:

  • mapping over 150 climateadaptation measures in Malmo
  • measured the efficiency of swales in Augustenburg (result: saturated infiltration capacity of 1cm/hour)
  • demonstration and participation in full-scale infiltration tests
  • mapping of pollutants in SuDS with XRF
  • measure water quality with ROV and underwaterdrones
  • heat stress mapping with sensors on bikes

The results are presented at the seminar of the JPI Water projects INXCES, Muffin and SURF ‘Rain cities and Risks. The results is helping stakeholders to develop and implement climate adaption measures.

Other projects as #WaterCoG and #Reconect provided a toolbox for governance during the climatecafe. Young professionals from the young leaders program of the Global Centre of Adaption coordinated the climatecafe. More impressions:
