Climate change impacts urban life all over the world -and we need to start preparing our cities for it. Also in the city of Amsterdam, where hot summer days make the urban mercury rise 6-9 C higher than in its rural surroundings, do citizens face problematic living conditions due to extreme weather conditions. What - and who - do we need to improve the climate of the cities we live in? According to the AMS' climate responsive design specialist, Sanda Lenzholzer, the answer lies within the field of urban design and with you, the citizens. That's why Sanda and two other urban (micro)climate researchers present their insights on climate resilient cities, while challenging the audience to be part of the solution: how can you help to design a climate-proof city?
