The science that helps us understanding the processes of climate change is, however, quite complex. In this workshop climate change will be explained in a clear and understandable manner. Questions like: "how does climate change happen?", "what do(n't) we know about climate change?" and "how will climate change affect us?" will be answered. At the end of the workshop also innovative solutions for dealing with climate change are presented.

Hot times in the city
Extreme weather is expected to be more severe and happen more frequent, due to climate change. This includes storms, flooding, but also droughts and high temperatures. Due to differences in geography, historical circumstances, and national institutions, different cities will face different challenges. At the same time, there are some basic commonalities across cities with regards to common adaptation challenges. How will your city be influenced by climate change. Is your city prepared for the effects of climate change? How resilient is your city to extreme weather at this moment?
In this interactive workshop a broad range of questions will be discussed and innovative tools will be presented.
