EURESFO2022​ Masterclass Urban Heat

The European Urban Resilience Forum (EURESFO) is held on 14 and 15 September 2022 and is a unique exchange platform where city representatives and stakeholders from various local and regional institutions come together to discuss strategies and actions for adapting to climate change and building urban resilience. EURESFO also offers a unique opportunity to share innovations develop from the collaboration of cities with leading academic, research and technology organisations.

On the 14th of September 2022 REACHOUT will host a Masterclass on Urban Heat: from Analysis to Action from 14.00 -15.30 hours.

This Masterclass is an opportunity to present scientific developments in the field, as well as showcase how cities innovate to address the challenge. The Masterclass aims to engage the wider community of knowledge experts and city representatives to discuss on heat risk analysis, heat-related policies and governance, as well as solution interventions. It also targets city officials and practitioners working on reducing health and socio-economic impacts of extreme heat in cities and regions.

REACHOUT will also participate in the event’s Marketplace to showcase the latest climate services developed by the R&D teams of the project (Deltares, CAS, CMCC, TECNALIA, NGI) on the 14th of September from 11:30 to 13:00 hours.
