Extreme heat events, or heat waves, are on the rise in the US. This is intensified by the urban heat island effect, which makes cities warmer compared to non-urban environments.
In this program, you will learn about the health and social impacts of extreme heat, work with other participants to explore and recommend resilience strategies to keep our communities cool, and learn about how participating in community science can help inform scientists about which communities are the hottest.
Join us for a fun and interactive evening where you decide how communities around Boston should handle extreme heat!Registration is required. Please click here to RSVP.
