5th Project Meeting - Gothenburg, Sweden


The 5th SECOA project meeting took place in Gothenburg from 18 to 21 June 2012 and was hosted by the University of Gothenburg - School of Global Studies. The project has entered its second phase, when the first results of the Case Studies Analysis (climate change, natural hazards, environmental stresse, social economic and cultural dimensions of urban development, conflicts of uses in case studies) are to be put together to create the taxonomy and modelling to be used for the creation of the case studies scenarios. In this second phase the methodology for the stakeholders and policy makers involvement is also under definition, running together with the other activities. All these issues were presented and planned during the meeting.

The field trip was dedicated to the visit of the Älvrummet, where partners got information about and discussed the developments of the city's urban planning; afterwards a sight seeing tour through the canals of Gothenburg and the Gota Alv was organized. After lunch some very interesting presentations by two local stakeholders from Alvstranden Utveckling AB and from the City planning office, took place in Lilla Bommen. The day after partners visited the Gothenburg Archipelago.
