3rd Coastal Symposium

Küste im Wandel - Coast in Transition 2022

9 – 11 November, 2022

Hamburg, Germany


The increasing pressure on our coasts due to climate change and human use increases the need for results and options for action for sustainable coastal management. The 3rd Coastal Symposium 'Küste im Wandel - Coast in Transition 2022' brings together scientists and practitioners and is a forum for exchange on the research topics of

  • nature based coastal adaptation,
  • sustainable fisheries and
  • multiple stressors.


On the first day, the focus is on the exchange with practitioners (conference language German). On the second and third day, the scientific discussion will be deepened (conference language English). A varied program invites networking and discussion. Be there and make a note of the most important dates:

  • DEADLINE EXTENSION: Submission of oral presentations and posters from 1 June until 14 August, 2022.
  • Registration until 15 October, 2022
