CliSAP successfully finished in 2018. Climate research continues in the Cluster of Excellence "CLICCS".

Climate Week: Visitors build City adapted to Climate


Hamburg´s Climate Week is taking place for the fourth time – this year, in Hafencity. From September 24th to 30th visitors can inform themselves on renewable energies, sustainability, climate research and climate adaptation. Members of the KlimaCampus present themselves in the Unilever House over the weekend.

Also this year, the KlimaCampus presents some exciting exhibits, such as the "Urban Climate Architect", developed by scientists of the excellence cluster for climate research CliSAP. In building houses, offices, industrial plants and public parks on computer screens, visitors can set up a city with an optimized climate. Increase in population and necessary jobs are additional challenges for the players. The interactive game shows in an entertaining way how buildings, public parks or streets influence the city climate – and how the ideal built-up area would look like.

The DKRZ, Climate Service Center and the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology invite you to a journey through time: Their interactive globe is always a crowd puller. Different simulations show the impact of the climate change all over the world. In contrast, the North-German Climate Office shows with its internet atlas future climate changes in the metropolitan area of Hamburg. And with its hydrogen speedsters, the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht presents possible future energy sources.

Further highlights at the Climate Week: an educational program for Hamburg schools, the Climate Theme Park on the weekend, the Climate Concert, a Climate Finance Summit in the Chamber of Commerce as well as the Climate Night during the Europe-wide Researcher´s Night.
