In its series ‘Climate Now’, Euronews takes a look at how UNESCO world heritage sites could be protected from the effects of climate change. This interesting article is about the historic city of Lübeck in Germany.
Lübeck is embraced by the river Trave and sits unprotected from the nearby Baltic Sea. It is a position that helped the city to become an important medieval trading centre, but which now leaves it vulnerable to rising water levels.
