The Cityscape and the Climate Emergency: toward collaborative action

17 November 2020, 12:30-14:30
Online event

LCCP organized this event to bring together experts from across disciplines (and continents) to explore the challenges of adapting to climate change in our complex and interconnected urban environments. We heard about why net zero poses risks to healthy indoor environments, how greening has benefits for health and adaptation, how the Green Finance Institute plans to tackle climate resilience, and the need for meaningful participation of communities in the design of their local places.

We also welcomed colleagues from New York and Lisbon to share their solutions and ways of working. See the presentations below:
