An Equity-Focused Approach to Urban Heat Resilience

Kizzy Charles-Guzman, Deputy Director of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, gave the keynote public lecture for our Advancing the Theory and Practice of Urban Heat Resilience workshop in October 2020. The workshop was organized by myself and several colleagues, had the participation of the nation’s leading urban heat researchers and practitioners, and was generously hosted by the Aspen Global Change Institute. The workshop and its proceedings will lay the groundwork for the next decade of actionable science on urban heat resilience. A workshop summary and findings are forthcoming and Kizzy’s exciting public lecture was recorded and is available to view now if you missed it!
