Organized by Consulate General of Switzerland in New York in collaboration with the AIA Technology Committee, Singapore-ETH Centre, ETH Future Cities Laboratory, Cooling Singapore, ETH Zurich, and The Urban Systems Lab at The New School.
Growing population, densification of the urban environment, reduced vegetation, and increased energy consumption all contribute to rising temperatures in cities. How can cities respond to this urban heat challenge? How can we ensure livability in cities against the backdrop of climate change? In this event, we will hear from various speakers from NYC and Singapore about ongoing efforts to cool our cities.
