He started his studies at University College London (Environmental Biology), where he wrote his thesis on the changing distribution of species due to global climate change, followed by an Erasmus scholarship (MSc in Applied Ecology).
At WWF Hungary, he worked on climate change impacts and adaptation options, water management, and the municipal environment. He focuses on the adaptation of the already existing water management systems and expected impacts in Hungary.

4th WS: The practice of nature-based solutions for climate adaptation and water retention
Why 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.
