The City of Athens is looking for climate solutions which will reduce the urban temperature and mitigate urban heat island effect within the city. To achieve this, Athens would like to utilize existing municipal buildings e.g. schools and abandoned building lots, to transform them into green spaces to improve the city’s microclimate.
Ultimately the solution should be fully integrated, incorporating multiple aspects such as lowering energy consumption and increasing climate resilience. This project is in line with the objectives of Athens’ Climate Action Plan and Resilience Strategy, which both aim to improve the municipality’s capacity to respond to climate change risk and create more liveable neighbourhoods.
Athens wants to:
C40 Cities hosted a 2 day co-creation workshop in Athens as part of the C40 City Solutions Platform on the 25th – 26th September 2018. There were 12 participants from the Nordics who helped drive the initial ideas for solutions to the city’s challenges. The next steps and concrete project opportunities based on the outcomes form the workshop will be announced asap.
