Europe’s 6th Climate Adaptation Conference, ECCA 2023, will take place in Dublin, Ireland, and online from 19 to 21 June 2023. The MAGICA project, organized the event together with the Joint Programme Initiative “Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe” (JPI Climate) and with the support of the European Commission.
Structured around six Thematic Topics and more than 70 sessions, the in-person event of over two days is gathering more than 1000 attendees, with live streaming of all plenary sessions. ECCA 2023 is designed to act as a forum for knowledge and best practices exchange on climate adaptation and resilience building between policymakers, private sector actors and scientists, while nurturing a community of climate adaptation practices. The purpose of the conference is to inspire adaptation by showcasing solutions, exchanging knowledge, creating connections, and encouraging dialogue on how to act more and faster at every level.
AGORA will be present at the event in a dedicated session on 20th June at 16:30 in the Guard Room at Berford Hall. The transdisciplinary co-production session aims to facilitate dialogue across research and government, practitioners, civil society, private sector, and international organizations and foundations. The session will be focused on discussions on how to have “Ease the use of Climate Data, monitor Climate Risks and fight Climate Change Disinformation: the pillars of the Digital AGORA platform” and “Good practice community and citizen engagement for accelerating a climate resilient future in Europe and beyond”. The session is structured as a World Café which takes place in a room with small tables among which participants can rotate, engaging at each table through participatory drawing and reflective discussion, which creates an informal and inclusive setting for peer-to-peer learning and co-production.
