Cities on the Frontline: Addressing extreme Heat – learning from Paris at 50 degrees


25. April 2024    
16:00 - 17:00


As cities around the world continue to grow, they are also increasingly facing different challenges, for instance, from the impacts of climatic changes, such as extreme heat. Due to urban population and infrastructure density, cities are particularly vulnerable to different impacts of rising temperatures. Cities not only need to create coping mechanisms to deal with today’s risks of extreme temperature, but in the face of an even more dangerous development in the future, city planning is responsible for finding adaptation methods for future risks. Looking at Paris as an example of cities actively approaching the challenge of heat, by applying community- and technology-based approaches, as well as focussing on green spaces and reflecting surfaces, this session will explore a city’s potential of becoming less vulnerable to heat.
