Sciences Citoyennes launches a campaign on social media to promote the TeRRIFICA crowdmapping tool in Brittany, Normandy and Pays de la Loire
November 9, 2020
The TeRRIFICA partner Sciences Citoyennes launches a week of mobilization on social media on the dates when COP26 was expected to take place.
What? Climatoscopy is an online collaborative mapping tool that allows everyone to identify places where the effects of climate change are felt: http://climatoscopie.terrifica.eu The tool also makes it possible to note good practices, or to propose solutions to climate change mitigation or adaptation in problematic locations. Residents, tourists, workers, can register on the platform and then designate points according to 5 categories of effects: water management, wind and extreme phenomena, soil quality, temperature and air quality.
Why? First of all, to locally document and visualize the effects of the changing climate thanks to the local and experiential knowledge of those who experience it. This visualization will not only alert decision-makers of the extent of the effects of climate change, but also will engage citizens in local fights for finding and implementing local solutions to climate change. The tool was developed within the framework of the European Horizon 2020 TeRRIFICA project in order to mobilize and communicate more massively on the map. Sciences Citoyennes launches a week of mobilization on social media on the dates when COP26 was expected to take place.
