Floriade Dialogue #27: Climate Responsive Cities

Almere, Netherlands 03 October 2022 at 10:00 CEST

Meet Harmonia at Floriade a world horticultural exhibition that takes place in the Netherlands only once a decade, and discuss how cities and the health of its citizens are being impacted by the climate change, and most importantly, how can we make the cities more resilient.

The workshop and discussion will be covering 3 main perspectives of Decision Support System to mitigate climate change:

  • The health-impact perspective on environment and human health, discussing the challenges caused by pollution and climate change in urban environments as well as the potential benefits of greener cities.
  • The Earth Observation (EO) perspective. How can EO data be used and implemented in urban environments, what information could EO provide.
  • The municipality perspective. How do municipalities do EO projects and what is their current experience.
