Nod prosiect CCAT yw cefnogi cymunedau arfordirol i ddeall y newid yn yr hinsawdd a sut i ymaddasu

Mae’r newid yn yr hinsawdd yn effeithio’n uniongyrchol ar Fôr Iwerddon a’i gymunedau arfordirol. Cronfa Datblygu Ranbarthol Ewrop sy’n ariannu’r prosiect hwn yn rhannol drwy Raglen Iwerddon Cymru a chynhelir y prosiect o 2019 i 2021. Bydd yn canolbwyntio ar gymunedau yng Ngogledd Dulyn yn Iwerddon a Sir Benfro yng Nghymru.

Mae Coleg Prifysgol Dulyn yn arwain y prosiect mewn partneriaeth â Chyngor Sir Fingal a Choleg Prifysgol Cork yn Iwerddon, a Phrifysgol Caerdydd, Fforwm Arfordirol Sir Benfro a Phorthladd Aberdaugleddau yng Nghymru

Bydd CCAT yn edrych ar sut gall offer digidol helpu pobl i ymgyfarwyddo â newid e.e. defnyddio gemau rhyngweithiol ac adnoddau dysgu ar-lein i helpu plant a phobl ifanc i ddeall sut mae’r newid hinsoddol yn effeithio ar yr ardal leol. Bydd y prosiect hefyd yn cefnogi cymunedau i ddeall sut mae modd iddynt addasu i’r newid hinsoddol drwy weithdai a chynlluniau fel mapio’r newidiadau yn eu hardal a chynllunio i wneud eu cymunedau allu ymdopi’n well ag effeithiau’r newid hinsoddol.

Ymateb CCAT i CoVID-19

The CCAT project sets out to build capacity to adapt to change in Irish Sea coastal communities through citizen engagement in activities such as participatory mapping, geodesign workshops, geogames and interactive teaching resources. From the outset, the project has taken a blended approach of using digital and non-digital tools with a mix of online and in-person interactions to help communities adapt together.

With the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent social distancing measures in the UK and Ireland, the project itself has had to adapt to change. We will now fully embrace the opportunities presented by digital tools for citizen engagement and explore their pros and cons, their potential and their limitations. In order to do this, we have now moved all our activities online, however, we may run in-person events in the future should this be possible. So for example, our GeoDesign workshops will now take place entirely online, teaching resources will be re-imagined and made available online, and knowledge exchange events will now use digital platforms. The project outputs will therefore be accessible to a much greater number of people and further reduce our travel and carbon footprint which is in line with the project’s eco-code.

We believe this adaptation presents a real opportunity for CCAT to increase our knowledge, expertise and experience in the use of digital technologies for citizen engagement and will be of huge benefit to our partner organisations and the communities in Fingal and Pembrokeshire.
