The conference "Regional Climate Change in the Coastal Region - Shaping our Future Together"
by the research network REKLIM "Regional Climate Change and Humans" of the Helmholtz Association was held on June 8, 2021. The event took place purely digitally this year as part of the annual REKLIM regional conferences due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to a series of presentations and Q&A sessions on the consequences of climate change in the German coastal zone, there was a panel discussion on the question "Why is the climate now more important than ever?". In the interactive "Klönschnack" on SpatialChat, the participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas with the renowned speakers from science and civil society during a lunch break. In an informal setting, they were able to ask specific questions about the state of research and discuss possible challenges and approaches.
