We will discuss the solutions and challenges of implementing local energy communities in CEE region and how these can increase the local and regional energy security and resilience.
4th WS: The practice of nature-based solutions for climate adaptation and water retentionWhy this workshop?
In this workshop, participants will get an impulse on how climate adaptation and water retention can be implemented in practice. Sofver-based heat mapping (heat waves and Urban Heat Islands) and nature-based water retention measures can help to find the roots of the local problems and the best solutions. During the workshop participants will work in small groups and theoretical and practical knowledge about this topic can be learned via real case studies.
