As part of the consultation process on the Green Paper, a series of 4 workshops for European Stakeholders took place in Helsinki, Budapest, London and Lisbon. They covered both aspects of the Green Paper and a debate on broader climate change issues.
Each of the workshops focused on the specific climate change impacts and challenges for adaptation in the 4 main geographical regions of Europe (North, South, West, East). Their main aim was to generate discussion and debate on the green paper, stimulating genuine participation and feedback.
Participation at the workshops included stakeholders, citizens, authorities, NGO's, the private sector, academics and civil society in the widest possible sense.
