100 climate solutions from Danish Municipalities


Coast to Coast Climate Challenge (C2C CC) is a knowledge platform and a series of projects for climate adaptation running across multiple Danish municipalities.

The 31 partners of Coast to Coast Climate Challenge (C2C CC) have joined forces to create a climate-resilient region at the forefront of handling the consequences of climate change. Crossing municipal and regional borders, the project represents a unique example of collaboration, coordination and knowledge sharing about a communal climate change adaptation agenda.


The project, which has a total budget of approximately 12 million EUR, is part of the EU LIFE framework. The project is anchored in cross-sectoral subprojects and 17 local demonstrations projects, all dealing with climate change and other environmental challenges. Projects are by nature highly interdisciplinary and public-private cooperation is encouraged, so that successful projects have the opportunity to exhibit their solutions and inspire more partnerships.

C2C CC aims to create resilient cities in a climate robust region, based on long-term strategy and collaboration.

Through workshops and partnership meetings with the firms, the C2C CC works on making water a resource in the solutions that will be a part of creating sustainable regional development. One of the 17 local demonstration projects is the AquaGlobe project in Skanderborg, supporting research, communication and development of water-related sustainability projects.
