Workshop on Advancing the Theory and Practice of Urban Heat Resilience

The goal of this workshop is to develop a practice-driven research agenda on urban heat resilience. The workshop will engage dozens of key stakeholders representing private, public, and non-profit sectors on the focus areas of public health, planning, built environment, energy infrastructure, heat mapping, and climate services. Stakeholders will learn and share together virtually as a group and in small groups through facilitated dialogues, individual surveys, a live public lecture, virtual student poster presentations, and opportunities for more informal networking. This workshop and its proceedings will lay the groundwork for the next decade of actionable science on urban heat resilience.

The public lecture portion of the event, titled An Equity-Focused Approach to Urban Heat Resilience, will take place on Monday, October 19 at 4 pm PT (7 pm ET). Click here for more information.

This event is being organized by the Aspen Global Change Institute, Dr. Ladd Keith (University of Arizona), and others.

Attendance at the workshop is by invitation only, however, the student poster session and webinar will be posted online after the event. Please continue to check the link below for updates and information if you are interested.
