Expert Knowledge, Innovative Thinking Putting the best information in front of the best people
We are seeing examples of more extreme weather conditions than ever before. The most threatening one for our most vulnerable citizens, the very young and the elderly, is heat. As the density of our cities increases and the elderly population continues to grow, we are challenged to design urban environments that will be resilient to extreme heat and prolonged heatwaves.
“Building resilience: being young and getting old in a hotter Europe” is the third in a series of Urban Insight reports from Sweco on the topic Climate Action. In the report, our experts highlight the specific data, facts and science that are needed to plan and design safe and resilient future urban environments.
