The University of La Laguna was present at the XII edition of the 'MARE People and the Sea' conference, held in Amsterdam from June 26 to 30.
The MARE congress is organized by the University of Amsterdam, and is held with the support of the Center for Sea and Society of the University of Gothenburg (Sweden); the Leibniz Center for Tropical Mrine Research (ZMT, Germany); the Center for Blue Governance at Aalborg University (Denmark); Wageningen University & Research (Netherlands); and the University of Tromsø (Norway).
This is the most important congress related to research in Social Sciences in maritime-coastal environments.
This edition was dedicated to the challenges and uncertainties related to global changes and the effect of climate change, under the theme 'Blue Fear: navigating ecological, social and existential anxieties during the Anthropocene'.
The congress took the "Blue Fear" as a starting point and invited to face it. Current opportunities and threats in the era of anthropogenic and climate change were explored and ways to investigate the field of “people and the sea” from new angles.
On June 27, Raquel de la Cruz Modino gave a presentation entitled "Perceptions, interpretations and participation strategies towards coastal hazards related to climate change in Macaronesia".
The next day it was Carla González Cruz's turn with her presentation: “Neighbors participating in mitigating the impact of climate change: the case of Garachico and coastal flooding”.
Thank you both very much for your contributions and the dissemination of the LIFE Garachico project.
