The Irish Sea and its coastal communities are directly impacted by climate change. This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Programme and will run from 2019 to 2021. It will focus on communities in Fingal in Ireland and Pembrokeshire in Wales.
The project is led by University College Dublin in partnership with Fingal County Council and University College Cork in Ireland and Cardiff University, Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum and the Port of Milford Haven in Wales.
CCAT will involve interactive games so that children and young people can understand how climate change is affecting their local area. Communities will be involved in collaborative planning for the future and other initiatives including a cross-border learning exchange programme, cross-border knowledge exchange workshops and creating learning resources for schools and adult education.
