About the project

With the help of citizens, this project will measure urban heat islands, overheating, and local climate change in selected Australian councils, providing the data required for citizens to understand, mitigate and adapt to extreme heat.

Project results may assist policymakers in predicting future health and energy needs and planning the urban built environment and open space. Importantly, through data collection and participation, citizens will be empowered to respond to extreme heat through an understanding of the influential factors.
