Extreme weather events such as droughts, floods and hurricanes threaten the health, lives and functioning of local communities. Scientists are in no doubt that climate change cannot be stopped and we as communities must learn to adapt to it. According to the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management’s data, the biggest problems are water scarcity and loss of biodiversity. These phenomena occur intensively in the region of Lower Silesia. They have a direct impact on valuable habitats and species, as well as on water resources and crops in rural areas. Flooding due to heavy rainfall, which occurs in the south of the region, is also a major threat. The answer to these problems is the development of green-blue infrastructure (green areas, tree plantings, protected areas, open landscapes, watercourses, ponds, etc.) that reduces vulnerability to climate change. Within the project we will carry out a Green School for Climate Leaders – a 3-day training course for leaders of local organisations operating in rural municipalities in Lower Silesia, preparing them to implement green-blue initiatives. We will implement 8 green-blue initiatives, which will increase engagement in activities for the local community. Participants will develop recommendations for adaptation to climate change, which will be included in the strategic documents of the municipalities. We will carry out webinars and conferences to raise awareness on climate change adaptation and green-blue infrastructure for participants of the project and other people interested in its topic.
