Act & Adapt

It’s the biggest challenge of the 21st century: the changing climate. We all notice it. Consequences of flooding due to heavy rainfall, heatwaves, and draughts have an increasing impact on our daily lives.

Luckily we can learn how we can adapt to the changing climate in order to keep our living environment safe and habitable. We Act & Adapt! Will you?

BREAKING NEWS!

Over 70 (inter)national speakers from more than 20 countries share their ideas on climate adaptation in Groningen.

It’s probably the biggest challenge of the 21st century: the changing climate. Consequences of flooding due to heavy rainfall, heatwaves, and draughts have an increasing impact on our daily lives.

Groningen is providing substantive content to that summit from youth, Nobel Prize Laureates and IPCC members. Read more >>
