Climate seminar in Tromsø September 3rd 2013


Welcome to Climate seminar on climate change and panel debate on Framsenteret in Tromsø the 3th of. September.

– Will the climate change effect the north areas?

– Scenario 2100

– What can we do to meet the challenge?

For program – click HERE, unfortunately only in Norweigian.

NORTHERN NETWORK ON CLIMATE CHANGE is an EU project with Norway, Sweden and Finland participate. The project builds networks for information exchange and synergy between research institutions, local decision-makers and stakeholders further. This so the communities in the North will be better equipped to face the effects and consequences of climate change.

Research shows that northern climate could change radically within a few decades. The temperature is expected to rise throughout the country, but mostly in winter and most in the northern parts of Scandinavia.

Average temperatures are expected to increase by 2.3 to 4.6 degrees by 2100.

How will this affect local conditions for better or worse?

MountEE – Building the future!

Sustainable and efficient building is the FUTURE! To build sustainable it takes teamwork between decisions maker, architects, construction industry and the locals. They should be involved early in the process. This film shows several good examples of sustainable building from European mountain regions in Sweden, The Alps and Pyrenees. Concrete proposals and ideas makes it easy to start today! This film is produced within the project MountEE by the project team with the help of professional partners.
