InClimate: Integrating climate resilience in EU higher education
Principal Investigator(s): Dr Esra Kurul, Dr Maurizio Sibilla
Project start: October 2020
Project finish: September 2022
Funded by: European Commission
Most countries in the EU are dealing with climate risk management issues but lack a holistic and common approach to resilience. This topic has become one of the priorities of the Erasmus Programme. Our InClimate project addresses this by focusing on urban resilience.
An urban resilience framework needs transversal competences, e-skills, creativity and flexibility. The framework brings together diverse disciplines and sectors and identifies:
- appropriate measures
- and recovery.
The project aims to tackle the challenge posed by climate change by:
- increasing the interdisciplinary skills of Higher Education Institution (HEI) staff and students
- developing innovative, educational approaches to planning and allied disciplines.
Desk activities and workshops for both teaching staff and students will be based on the use of collaborative Concept Maps. This will lead to:
- collective production
- dissemination of Open Educational Resources (OERs).
Direct and indirect training for key staff within urban governance will help to shape resilient policies.
