Why A-AAGORA project?

The Horizon Europe project Atlantic-Arctic Agora (A-AAGORA) is structured to support the European Commission Mission on “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030” within the “Atlantic- Arctic lighthouse”.

A-AAGORA is responding to the need:
• To protect and restore marine and freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity.
• To protect valuable ecosystems located in coastal communities particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts.
• To mitigate the effects of climate change, while promoting societal well-being.

Where will A-AAGORA be implemented?

A-AAGORA will demonstrate how innovation, Ecosystem-based Management and Nature-based Solutions can contribute to sustainable transformation in three coastal areas:

Troms, Arctic Archipelago, Norway

County Cork, Ireland

Centro Region, Portugal

The three Demos will serve as pilots of innovative actions, providing important data from the Atlantic-Arctic Lighthouse that can advance global ocean science and direct research in other coastal and marine regions.
