Event description

Description


You will perform microclimate measurements and experiments that will help you understand the effects of extreme heat and how it impacts your local area. You will discover how urban design, innovative materials and plants can create a cooling effect, improve comfort, and reduce your household’s energy needs and electricity bills.

This Citizen Science Project is sponsored by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science and developed in collaboration between Hawkesbury City Council, RMIT University and the University of New South Wales, who will assist you during the activity.

Before undertaking the activity, you will be required to read and sign the Safe Work Procedure (made available to participants).
