Husum Coast & Prevention @ Messe Husum & Congress

Climate change is progressing unbraked. The earth heats up; extreme weather conditions become more frequent. That is settled.

In order to continue to protect our coasts and landscapes from dangers such as floods and storm surges, infrastructure and building stocks must be adequately prepared for extreme weather events. Only when climate protection and climate adjustment go hand in hand, our children such as our grandchildren continue to live without great dangers on earth – not only in Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark or in the Netherlands, but also in New Orleans, in the Everglades, in Bangladesh and in many other places around the world.

An interdisciplinary exchange of experts in the fields of civil engineering, climate science, economics, Water Science and biology is more than ever needed to create serious good strategies to make climate change manageable.

Regular exchanges of these actors are essential. We want to bring scientists, researchers, engineers, conservationists, countries and municipalities, associations as well as interested parties together, in order to promote the exchange of knowledge and to develop common solution models.

On the 28th and 29th October we are presenting the 1st Husum Coast & Prevention, an international conference on climate Change, coastal protection, dikes constructions, floods, heavy rain and nature conservation.

Anthony Leiserowitz, Yale University: “It’s real, it’s us, it’s bad, experts agree, there’s hope.”
