Citizens, civil society organizations, academics, experts, policy-makers, entrepreneurs, and other relevant actors will be engaged in the co-design and co-creation of innovative and problem oriented climate adaptation solutions that could be extensively adopted in Europe. The AGORA project will take into consideration  the ongoing social changes the awareness that there is no “one size fits all” solution.


A set of pilot regions will constitute the co-production arena to co-design, co-develop and co-implement climate adaptation solutions. AGORA will also develop a roadmap for transformational change and upscale of citizen engagement, for transferability of effective policy instruments and for ensuring long term legacy.
