ECCA 2017: Our Climate Ready Future

Co-organized by EU-funded IMPRESSIONS, HELIX and RISES-AM projects, in collaboration with Adaptation Scotland and Glasgow City Council ECCA 2017, ‘Our Climate Ready Future’, welcomed over 850 people in the City of Glasgow in June 2017.

The vision was that this conference would inspire and enable people to work together to discover and deliver positive climate adaptation solutions that can strengthen society, revitalise local economies and enhance the environment.

"We were delighted to get a great response to our efforts to engage others outside the academic community, and the conference was able to bring together the people who will deliver action on the ground – from business, industry, NGOs, local government and communities – to share knowledge, ideas and experience with leading researchers and policymakers. Glasgow proved to be the ideal venue, at the heart of a city-region that is putting climate adaptation and climate justice at the core of decision making. Delegates were welcomed at the magnificent City Chambers, with a speech by the deputy Lord Provost that set out Glasgow’s strong commitment to tackling both the causes and the effects of climate change." explain the organizers.
