EmCliC is a three-year research project that brings together social anthropology, sociology, climate science, epidemiology, atmospheric physics and novel technology, to understand and demonstrate how people experience climate change on a daily basis.
The project focuses on the case of raising temperatures and heat in Warsaw and Madrid to study the bio-social adaptive capacities of individuals and communities.
CfP Embodying Climate Change Workshop
We invite submissions for our Embodying Climate Change Workshop which will take place in September 2023 in Poznan.
EmCliC presented at the NCN conference promoting the Basic Research Programme
The visual notes from the conference are available at the Centre's website and the recording at their YouTube channel (our presentation starts at 2:15:31).
Interactive workshops in Warsaw and Madrid
EmCliC organized workshops with older adults in Warsaw and Madrid to deepen our understanding of bodily reactions to and experiences of heat, and creatively engage with heatwaves.
EmCliC at conferences this summer
EmCliC team members present our initial findings at various conferences
We just finished conducting workshops for the EmCliC survey’s interviewers
We just finished workshops with the EmCliC survey's interviewers, both in Madrid and in Warsaw. They got to know the project, learned about ethics and how to use their gear (laptops, compass, thermomether) as well as the questionnaire. First hot days have already come so we can't wait for the surey to begin!
EmCliC survey already tested in Warsaw!
We have succesfully completed the pilot of our questionnaire in Warsaw and improved the Polish version of the survey. We are now fine-tuning the Spanish version of the questionnaired and the pilot in Madrid will soon follow.
