Advancing the Theory and Practice of Urban Heat Resilience

The goal of this virtual workshop, held October 19-20, 2020, was to develop a practice-driven research agenda on urban heat resilience. The workshop engaged dozens of key stakeholders representing private, public, and non-profit sectors on the focus areas of public health, planning, built environment, energy infrastructure, heat mapping, and climate services. Stakeholders learned and shared virtually as a group and in small groups through facilitated dialogues, individual surveys, a live public lecture, virtual student poster presentations, and opportunities for more informal networking. This workshop and its proceedings will lay the groundwork for the next decade of actionable science on urban heat resilience. Full workshop information, participant list, and presentations.
