CANUE - Greenness, public health and adapting to climate change
This summer was one of the hottest on record - especially in Canadian cities - and the accelerating rate of climate change means future summers will be hotter for longer, leading to increased heat-related deaths and health issues. By the middle of the century, the number of days over 30℃ will double in Canada. One of the key ways cities can respond to climate change and mitigate the effects of extreme heat in cities and promote better health is to create more green space, which cools the air and promotes better physical and mental health.
This webinar will:
- Review the physical and mental health impacts of green space
- Discuss how green space can help cities adapt to the effects of climate change
- Explore policies and investments cities could enact to accelerate the expansion of green space
