NSW Newcastle Cool Street Workshop - SOLD OUT

NSW Newcastle Cool Street Workshop - SOLD OUT
Join AILA NSW and Principal Partner Andreasens Green for a learning workshop in Newcastle to explore the concept of a sustainable future 'Cool Street.'

As average temperatures continue to rise, and the number of extreme heat days increase annually, methods to cool our cities are becoming increasingly important. With over three quarters of Australians now living in urban areas, combating the “urban heat island effect” within our cities is becoming a major public health issue.

The event will centre around presentations in a workshop format from senior leaders in the local industry and further afield defining a vision for the Cool Street - definitely an event not to be miss

Speaker program:

Alessandro Ossola Research Coordinator Centre for Smart Green Cities | Macquarie University, Sydney Topic: Planning and designing ‘cool’  urban landscapes

Fiona Morrison Commissioner Open Space and Parklands Topic: 5 Million Trees: Cooling the Future

Ben Gooden CEO | Citygreen Systems Topic: Designing treepits to meet target canopy objectives, and stormwater outcomes
