Heated Climate Change Debate in Norway’s Vesterålen 

A recent survey suggests that only half of Vesterålen’s population believes human activity is the main driver behind climate change. The survey initiated by the local partners in the RESIST Project in Vesterålen has ignited a local debate about climate change in the Arctic regions of Northern Norway, underlining the need to keep building knowledge and raising awareness about climate challenges.
Find more information below for the GAIA Arctic Summit event that will take place in Vesterålen on 6-7 June 2024.

A Changing Climate in Southwest Finland

Explore how the changing climate affects the rural-urban areas of the city of Turku.  
Tuula Hannula manages a vegetable plot that is rented out by the city of Turku. She has been noticing hotter summers with less rainfall and the appearance of new animals. Sometimes they are even able to grow tomatoes out in the open field, something she said would have been unimaginable in her childhood.  

Tuula and the gardening community in the area are also facing stormwater drainage issues, something the RESIST Project aims to tackle with nature-based solutions.

The Nature Restoration Law is a key part of the European Green Deal. This law aims to restore 20% of the EU’s habitats by 2030, and 90% by 2050. This is a huge win for nature and biodiversity, as 80% of natural habitats in the EU are in a poor state right now. But the fight is not over yet.
