Communication and Awareness

Communication and awareness-raising activities

The objective of FORECCAsT is to change the practices and the perception of the current and future impacts of climate change. In order to better communicate according to the public, a perception survey was carried out among the population of the Park territory, forest-wood stakeholders and elected representatives. It was about their sensitivity to climate change.

An itinerant exhibition

The exhibition dedicated to the impacts of climate change on forests is available in two copies. It is offered on loan and is also visible at events organized within the framework of the FORECCAsT project. To reserve the exhibition, please contact the documentation service of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park: 04 67 97 58 77.

The ten panels of the exhibition are presenting four topics:

  • Presentation of the LIFE FORECCAsT project
  • Major mechanisms responsible of climate change
  • Impacts of climate change on forest ecosystems, and the role of forests in addressing climate change
  • A series of actions that are accessible to everyone to reduce their carbon footprint

A website and social networks

The FORECCAsT website and the Facebook page (Project Life Forecasts) allow you to keep up to date with the project and to get detailed information on the different actions and the project's progress.

Events related to the project

Several conferences are organized throughout the duration of the project, for the general public but also for professionals in the forest-wood sector and elected representatives.

The project team also regularly travels to organized events on forests and climate change.

Communication tools for all, to better communicate on the project

Information panels are installed at the Maison du Parc Natural Regional of Haut-Languedoc in Saint-Pons-de-Thomières as well as on some silvicultural routes that will be realized.
