Nidelven, Trondheim

We have now set the timetable for the BluePlaces project

After a professional and social start in Trondheim, our new research project to create resilient coastal communities is officially underway.

On 19 and 20 March, we gathered project partners and advisers for the kickoff of BluePlaces at Scandic Nidelven in Trondheim.

During two exciting days, we discussed project structure, content, and how we will work going forward. With blue skies and proximity to the sea, it was a fitting and good start to the project.

The coast’s many challenges

In BluePlaces we will look at how we can create resilient blue places. This is at a time when both climate adaptation and social and economic changes are creating challenges along our coasts.

We will explore how we can develop a blue economy where different groups – including women, young people, and migrants – can all contribute.

During the start-up, we were able to look at different theoretical approaches to our research goals, as well as discussing the plan for case studies and research design.

Good to meet everyone

It was good to finally meet in person, to get to know each other better, and start the work. We have now developed a good plan for the project’s program of activities.

We will keep you updated on what is happening in the project along the way, also through social media.
