Webinar 7/13: Urban Heat Equity

Urban structures including buildings, roads, and other infrastructure absorb and re-emit the sun’s heat — contributing to “islands” of high temperatures in cities and towns of of all sizes. Moreover, heat islands impact some people more than others, leading some local governments to apply environmental justice principles to mitigate heat islands.

Take a break from the heat of summer with us to learn how local governments are addressing heat equity. You’ll hear how City of Chula Vista is using codes to address heat and discover how the U.S. EPA’s Heat Island Reduction Program can benefit your community, complete with specific cool roof and surface solutions available to mitigate the heat island effect.

Presenters:
Victoria Ludwig, National Program Manager - Heat Island Reduction Program, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Sarah Schneider, Deputy Director and Technical Committee Liaison, Cool Roof Rating Council
Cory Downs, Conservation Specialist, City of Chula Vista, CA
Kale Roberts, Senior Program Officer (Resilience Pathway co-lead), ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA
