Event Details

Cumberland City Council

You will perform microclimate measurements and experiments that will help you understand how to mitigate and adapt your community to extreme heat.  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 Cumberland Council, RMIT University and the University of New South Wales, who will assist you during the activity.


Please visit for more information about the project and what is involved in participation.


Meeting point: in front of the Auburn Community Centre, Macquarie Rd and Simpson Street, Auburn Council – look for UNSW staff in the carpark

When: Wed 06 March 2019, 2 pm - 5 pm. Each experiment can be completed in 30-45 min. You can stay for the whole afternoon performing all experiments, or also join us for just one experimental session.

Before undertaking the activity, you will be required to read and sign the Safe Work Procedure (made available to participants). There are no major risks or disadvantages associated with the participation in this study.
