    IMPETUS: Turning climate commitments into action

    impetusUWMH participates in the newly funded 4year H2020 project IMPETUS, which is an Innovation Action project funded by H2020-LC-GD-2020, Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: Research and innovation in support of the European Green Deal.

    The impacts of climate change are being felt here and now. From floods in Germany to wildfires in Greece and Turkey; water shortages in Northern Europe and even heatwaves in Siberia. Intensifying weather events threaten our way of life, with severe impacts on people’s health, livelihoods and assets. To help accelerate the Europe’s climate adaptation strategy and meet ambitions to become the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050, the European Commission has awarded a new flagship project named IMPETUS.

    Its objective: turn climate commitments into tangible, urgent actions to protect communities and the planet. Read more here

    Beginning October 2021 and set to run for four years, IMPETUS will share regular insights on its social media channels. Join in and share your climate adaptation stories too!
