Transition Coastal Labs

EmpowerUs is establishing 6 Transition Coastal Labs (TCLs) in various coastal communities across Europe. The TCLs will act as important sites for developing new knowledge through creative processes that actively involve communities through a process of real-life testing and sharing of information and knowledge.


The TCLs will design and facilitate different types of solutions using leading approaches to multi-actor collaboration. The TCL approach will empower coastal communities to tackle “wicked problems”, sustainability challenges and create solutions together for sustainable, resilient and inclusive coastal regions.
