Beat the Heat: Building Climate Resiliency in Philly

It’s getting hot in here. And by here, we mean everywhere. The effects of global climate change have consistently raised Philadelphia temperatures, making some neighborhoods hotter than others. The worst disparities occur in some of the poorest communities where more layers of asphalt and hard surfaces reflect, absorb, intensify, and retain heat. Join Ciara Williams at this interactive exhibit to see how Philadelphia is working to create heat resiliency programs to help residents prepare for and endure the winds of climate change. With informational displays, photographs, videos, and opportunities for participants to engage, this interactive exhibit provides a broad spectrum look at the community collaboration to generate climate resiliency in Philadelphia.
