Researchers from the BASE project explore various aspects of climate change in local cases across Europe. Many of the cases are about preparing for extreme events. The Finnish case is from the river Kalajoki. In Germany the Baltic coastal resort of Timmendorfer Strand has been studied and Jenny Tröltzsch of Ecologic Institute underlines the importance of local participation.
