Climate adaptation beacon - mobility and tourism under the banner of climate change in the City of Nuremberg and in the Tegernsee Valley
event 21.07.2015, 14:00 Gmund am Tegernsee
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. The leisure and tourist industry as well as the transport sector will be especially affected in the future by climate changes. Successful climate adaptation requires the opportunities and risks of both industries to be highlighted first.
Yet precisely where do the opportunities and risks of climate change lie in such different regions as the City of Nuremberg and the Tegernsee Valley? What are the overriding effects of climate change and how can we adapt to changing framework conditions? What could adaptation projects look like and how can they be assessed objectively? We want to discuss these questions at this event and present results from the "Mobility and Tourism" project.
In the project funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz, Bau und Reaktorsicherheit - BMUB) practical partners from the City of Nuremberg and the Tegernsee Valley, together with the Chair of Economic Geography and Tourism Research (Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftsgeographie und Tourismusforschung - LMU) and bifa Umweltinstitut (bifa) developed ideas for climate adaptation projects.
The most important results of this study and practical ideas (including checklist) will be presented at the event and made available in the form of guidelines.
