On November 8th SOCLIMPACT held its second Working Group Workshop where the main local actors of the blue economy of the islands met to share knowledge in critical areas and to look for the most appropriate ways to take advantage of the project.
Dr Carmelo León, Dr Sergio Moreno and Dr Sergio Suárez were in charge of welcoming the event and introducing the project and the methodology of the session. Besides, they shared inspiring ideas on how we can adapt and what opportunities may arise in the face of the already declared climate emergency in the Canary Islands
Participants were divided into four working groups corresponding to maritime transport, aquaculture, renewable energies and tourism where they had the opportunity to address the risks and impacts being experienced in each of these sectors. They particularly stressed the importance of extrapolating the project studies to policy decision-making and showed great interest in sharing data and supporting the project.
