Climate cafe in Oldenburg
The OOWV provided a current use case from the ongoing EU INTERREG project CATCH "Dealing with extreme heavy rain events and possible climate adaptation measures for Oldenburg”. In only one and a half days, students from different courses of study worked out proposals on how to bring the topic of extreme heavy rain events in public space closer to the citizens and make it visible in everyday life. A survey of about 70 citizens also showed that the majority of the Oldenburg citizens would be willing to implement climate adaptation measures themselves, either at home or in cooperation with others. The gained knowledge and creative suggestions will support the future work in the Oldenburg CATCH project.
Finally, the students presented their ideas at the conference of the INTERREG project Water-Co-Governance in Oldenburg.
