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.

Read the Euronews article and see whether it’s possible to stop this kind of destruction and if so, how?
