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.

How can we cool down the city?
We can’t change the weather. But the way our cities look – yes. Our cities can undergo a transformation that will make them pleasant places to live in all year round. And each of us can be a part of it.
