Heat health action planning in cities

The EXHAUSTION project is inviting you to a webinar with researchers and relevant stakeholders on the topic.

During the webinar, the following questions will be explored:

  • How can heat protection and reduction of air pollution (including from wildfires) be included in heat health action planning?

  • What needs to be considered when adapting heat health action planning to local contexts (e.g. heat health interaction, demography, social inequality, topography & city-planning)?

  • Which stakeholders and sectors should be involved?

  • What are effective measures for developing a climate-resilient low-emission city and how can these be integrated into a regional or local heat-health action plan?

Speakers:

  • Kristin Aunan, CICERO Center for International Climate Research

  • Antonio Gasparrini, The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

  • Francesca De' Donato, Lazio Regional Health Service in Rome, Italy:
    Heat health action planning in Europe - current evidence and gaps

  • Claire Slesinski, Helmholtz Munich: Social inequalities in exposure to heat stress in cities

The session will take place on Wednesday 31 January, 13:00-14:30 CET.
