This is a recording from the Living with Climate Change: Small Islands webinar. The full event is available on the Our World, Our Impact Hub.
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), based in Orkney, is the world’s leading research and test centre for marine renewable energy. Eileen is External Relationship Manager and in her time at EMEC, she has worked with 20 different wave and tidal technology companies from 11 different countries. The Centre has become a global focal point for the emerging marine renewables industry as Orkney has become home to some of the most innovative marine energy technologies currently in development as well as expanding into energy systems and green hydrogen.
Our climate is changing, impacting on the lives and livelihoods of people across the planet. But who is being affected and why? Life on small island developing states (SIDS) such as Seychelles, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Mauritius is changing, despite these communities contributing little to the causes of climate change. Has climate change had an impact on your life?
