[CONFERENCE] 3rd European Climate Change Adaptation Conference
5 - 9 June 2017, Glasgow, Scotland
The theme of ECCA 2017 is ‘Our Climate Ready Future’. The vision of the organisers is that this conference will 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.
It will 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 researchers and policymakers. Set in the cultural city of Glasgow, at the heart of a city-region that is putting climate adaptation and climate justice at the core of decision-making, ECCA 2017 offers a unique opportunity to visit many innovative local adaptation projects and share experience of how climate adaptation can work in practice.
ECCA 2017 is held in Europe but the focus will be global. Participants from over 60 countries on five continents have already registered their interest or submitted abstracts, and we expect the presentations and sessions to be fully international in scope.
