Summer in the city – fun for everyone?
Antje Katschner (MA)
Heat stress is something experienced by many of us in recent years, particularly by those living in urban areas. The reason are heat waves, an impact of climate change. The impacts of heat stress, however, affect the population unevenly, which is the interest of my research. I am working toward finding solutions for city planners to make cities livable for everyone. In order to do so, we need to account for social differences in urban planning processes and prevent climatically significant areas from being developed. Helpful are climate function maps which can be intersected with social data.
