About this Event

As extreme temperatures impact on health and wellbeing, our event for London Climate Action Week asks how cities can develop equitable climate resilience.

This event is the first in a new programme on climate resilience and equity in London and beyond.

With Londoners likely to face more 40°C days, we will focus on ways to heat and cool buildings and neighbourhoods to ensure our urban environment can cope with the extreme temperatures.

Attendees will hear different perspectives, practical ideas and have a chance to share their own experiences.
