TeRRIFICA International Summer School
The International Summer School “Climate Futures” will be held in September 2022 in Barcelona and is organized by the EU funded project TeRRIFICA (Territorial Responsible Research and Innovation Fostering Innovative Climate Action). This event is part of the European Sustainable Development Week 2022.
The aim of the Summer School is the collaboration of students from different European countries to imagine “climate futures” for Europe by 2030.
Key topics of the Summer School are:
- Climate change adaptation/mitigation measures in the European regions
- Urban planning and consequences of climate change
- Stakeholder and community engagement
- Citizen Science and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) methods in climate science
Participants will be involved in intensive exchange with experts and peers on regional climate challenges and best European practices in climate adaptation and mitigation. Through interactive keynote speeches, field trips to climate-related spots in Barcelona, and group and plenary work, they will gain a deep insight into the topic. Background scientific material for self-reasoning will additionally be provided.
Besides, participants will be introduced to the results of the climate crowdmapping and the living labs activities within the TeRRIFICA project. Based on this, they will - together with all Summer School participants - develop climate visions for 2030 in Europe. This work will be assisted by a mentor and the final results will be presented at the end of the Summer School to a broader audience.
What is TeRRIFICA?
The EU funded project TeRRIFICA (Territorial Responsible Research and Innovation Fostering Innovative Climate Action) aims to influence climate change mitigation and adaptation policies and foster competence for climate change adaptation and mitigation in six European regions with a specific focus on Responsible Research and Innovation and the co-creation of knowledge.
In a trans-disciplinary partnership, TeRRIFICA involves six European countries, bringing together three research institutions, three non-profit organisations, one public association of universities and one public institution for science promotion. TeRRIFICA is led by WILA Bonn (Bonn, Germany) and the TeRRIFICA consortium is composted by the Rhine-Waal University (Kleve, Germany), the Education for Sustainable Development Association (Minsk, Belarus), the Center for the Promotion of Science (Belgrade, Serbia), the University of Vechta (Germany), the Adam Mickiewicz University (Poznan, Poland), Sciences Citoyennes (Paris, France) and the Catalan Association of Public Universities (Barcelona, Spain). The project is funded by the Horizon2020 programme of the European Commission.
