... so the city doesn't burn

We help the cities of Central Europe effectively tackle the effects of climate change

When the city burns

The sun hovers over the asphalt of the street, the hot air radiating from the walls of nearby homes simply won’t go away. You can’t sleep at night nor open the windows during the day. Going somewhere means a desperate search for any sliver of shade. Life in the city is becoming unbearable. Does this sound familiar?

Why is the city unfit to live in?

Our cities and their inhabitants have found themselves involuntarily trapped on a heat island...

What’s happening to our cities?

Urban temperatures are several degrees higher than in the surrounding countryside; scientists call this effect “urban heat island”. It is caused by a large concentration of buildings, people and cars, lots of asphalt and concrete surfaces, and not enough greenery or water. Climatic extremes like heat waves are much more pronounced in these areas than anywhere else.
