Funded under the European Union’s Horizon Europe program, EmpowerUs is a €6 million, three-year project that will empower coastal communities to transition towards more resilient, inclusive and sustainable coastal development
The PROVIDE project examines various risk scenarios for high levels of global warming and the possible irreversible effects of exceeding the 1.5-degree climate target in the Paris Agreement. This includes rising sea levels, melting of permafrost and glaciers, and the loss of species on land and at sea.
We propose to contribute to sustainable development of coastal communities in the Arctic through qualitative case studies of cruise tourism development in six cruise communities across the European Arctic.
This project will increase our knowledge of how the local tourism industry can create new opportunities as they respond to the ongoing transformative changes of Svalbard’s society and environment and contribute to the development of the analytical concepts of transformation and adaptation.
CityLoops brings together seven ambitious European cities to demonstrate a series of innovative tools and urban planning approaches, aimed at closing the loops of urban material flows and increasing their regenerative capacity.
