Coastal communities increasingly experience the effects of climate change. It is becoming urgent for researchers, local stakeholders and citizens to address and promote climate resilience and act collectively. Thessaloniki, a port city with a long and continuous history has always retained a strong relationship to its waterfront which extends today more than 40 kilometers along the south east coast of the Thermaicos Gulf in northern Greece. SOS Climate Waterfront is a research European funded project (H2020 – MSCA Rise), reflecting on issues of management, design and planning of waterfront zones. This book presents the outcomes of the event organized in Thessaloniki, focusing on two areas of the city’s waterfront as case studies. Design proposals, scientific papers and reflection opinion articles present insights, strategies and design tools elaborated during this event through the interdisciplinary collaboration of academics, researchers and local government representatives aiming to enhance climate adaptation planning and face climate change risks in the area.
