Two workshops will be led by cluster 3. The first one is an on-line table top game that demonstrates the consequence of different development scenarios to the resilience of a coastal community. The second is an exercise on annotating in their native tongue existing animations depicting possible consequences to development or management decisions.

The overall objectives is to make the participants realize that human actions affect biodiversity and consequently our capacity to be resilient to climate change.
