Can we build a heatwave safe city for everyone?

level 1/11 York St
Sydney NSW 2000
Sydney Startup Hub

Thursday 16 May from 8:15am to 9:15am

Join us for a morning fireside chat-style discussion with Emma Bacon founder and executive director of Sweltering Cities, Dr. Elizabeth Farrelly author and founder of Better Cities Initiative and Emergency physician and climate leader Dr. Lai Heng Foong.

Sydney is predicted to experience weeks of extreme heat every summer for decades to come. How can we act together to make sure our city is safe for everyone, no matter where you live? What does a climate-resilient city look like?

Join the discussion as Emma Bacon, Dr. Elizabeth Farrelly and Dr. Lai Heng Foong talk about the type of creativity, innovation and coordination that will be needed to make our cities more sustainable, equitable and liveable. 

Breakfast snacks will be provided.
