As Curonian Spit is one of the most vulnerable places in Lithuania and the Baltic sea area, where global warming may cause irreversible change, it is the appropriate place to discuss climate change.

Surrounded by waters and buffeted by harsh winds, this narrow piece of land has suffered extreme forces of nature. However, people have never given up on adapting to life here, initiating massive protection and stabilization activities of the sand dunes which continue to this day. Today, on the brink of significant changes again, we will talk about actions that every one of us can take while living on this beloved sandy, wooded coastal spit - a cultural landscape on the World Heritage List since 2000.

An innovative way of talking about climate change is the key approach for independent meteorologist and columnist Silvestras Dikčius. A pilgrim and a philosopher, Silvestras invites us to an informal presentation: a short journey through the questions of what global warming actually is and how we encounter it today. Together we will go through the small steps in our daily routines that can make a difference for the future generations who want to enjoy life in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site of Curonian Spit.
