Changing Urban Climates & Impacts on Built Environment

The impacts of climate change are increasingly effecting the built environment in the UK. The impacts of this can lead to extreme weather events, increased flooding and urban heat island effect. Understanding the changes to environmental conditions is key to the design of resilient and sustainable buildings and communities.

Presented by the Met Office, this webinar will look at key challenges for the built environment in the context of climate change and how climate science can be used to support design and construction decisions.

This webinar will also provide attendees with an understanding of how climate model simulations are used to predict changing climates, and how this knowledge can be applied to planning and construction in built environment.

Confirmed Speaker: 
Michael Sanderson, Senior Applied Scientist, The Met Office
