City Hubs climate stories

The REACHOUT project aims to bridge the gap between scientists and society with climate stories. Climate stories combine a narrative structure with visualizations to communicate scientific knowledge to an audience to get a message across. We translate the scientific outcomes of the REACHOUT project to the needs of cities and integrate them in the stories, using the innovative communication method of storytelling. Explore the different climate stories through the map below. Do you want to learn more about the climate stories? Read the report.
