WONDER AT HOME WEBINAR SERIES

URBAN HEAT RESILIENCE

Heat is the number one weather-related killer in the U.S., yet receives far less attention than other climate risks. In this panel discussion, you will hear from faculty members and researchers how urban heat risk is an underestimated, yet increasing, climate risk in cities across the U.S. We will explore how cities are innovating to advance their urban heat resilience through the perspectives of urban planning, public health, and housing.
