About the project

Imagine scientists, with her and his, butterfly net. Yet these are not butterflies she and he are after. They are (gracefully) hunting down climate-centred narratives – as elusive and beautiful as the rarest of butterflies. And no, he and she will NOT pin them down. They will look at them as they deploy, live, change, and exist. By observing these, with the help of an international interdisciplinary team, they will identify the fabric of local communities’ weatherworlds. And from these weatherworlds they will infer the needs for climate services – current and future. This is what CoCliServ is about.
