Hot Topic, Cool Site 8/25
August 25 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Following last year’s great conversation in partnership with ILASLA on “Designing and Codifying Adaptation to Climate Change” we are following up with a Part II. Part I focused heavily on stormwater management and flooding. This year, we’ll look at another deadly impact affecting northeastern Illinois: extreme heat.
This in-person panel discussion and site tour focused on adapting to and mitigating extreme heat and urban heat islands. We will cool down with some snacks and beverages while we listen to these experts discuss site-level design interventions and greening tactics for the landscape architects and policy and planning techniques for urban planners. Following the presentation, we will get up close and personal with Omni Ecosystems landscapes and some nearby projects from the Chicago Department of Planning and Development.
