Project ACT - LIFE08 ENV/IT/000436
Adapting to Climate Change in Time

The project ACT (Adapting to Climate Change in Time), started in January 2010, aim to demonstrate that through an inclusive and participated process, shared by all the local actors involved, is possible to develop a "local adaptation plan" which will support the forecast and mitigation of environmental, social and economic impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable sectors of the European cities in the Mediterranean basin. The project partners are the Municipality of Ancona (Coordinator), the Municipality of Bullas, the Municipality of Patras, ISPRA (Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research) and the Forum of Adriatic and Ionian Cities (Faic). The Forum has been selected as the main responsible for communication and dissemination of the results of the project due to the network of cities the Forum can access and that may be involved and reached by communication and diffusion activities. The project ends on 30.11.2012.

During the 13th Plenary Session in Ancona (14-16 December 2011), the Forum of Adriatic and Ionian Cities has announced the international competition “CHANGE” reserved for students of secondary high schools for the creation of a Multimedia CD-ROM or DVD. The Forum, with the contribution of the European Community (Programme LIFE+) within the Project ACT promotes this competition in order to raise public awareness, especially among young generations, about the issues related to climate change and its consequences. The competition is addressed to groups of learners, classes or schools of higher education of the cities which are involved in the project ACT LIFE+ and are members of the Forum of the following countries: Spain (Municipality of Bullas), Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania and Greece. Due to the diversity of these Countries’ educational systems, the competition is restricted to students aged 14 to 18.
