Event description

Description

At this free workshop 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.

You will have the chance to get outside and perform microclimate measurements and experiments that will help you understand how to mitigate and adapt your community to extreme heat.

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