Cities in a Changing Climate - Preparing our cities for extreme weather by The Liveable City - 9th November 2016
Chaired by Abertay's Prof Joseph Akunna this event is part of the Liveable City programme, which is organised by the Danish Embassy and supported by The Royal Incorporation Of Architects In Scotland as well as Construction Scotland Innovation Centre.

Date and Time: Wednesday 9 November 2016  /  12:30 – 16:00 GMT

Venue: The Lighthouse, Gallery 4, 11 Mitchell Lane, Glasgow, G1 3NU

Climate change means that we have to prepare our cities for heavy downpours, rising sea levels and flash flooding. It makes clever flooding solutions a requirement to safeguard cityscapes, but it also adds value because sustainable, landscape-based rainwater handling can bring nature back to our cities. It can create new meeting places and spaces for activities and thereby develop a city where water is seen as a resource that must be utilized, as opposed to a threat to be mitigated.

This event is part of the Liveable City programme, which is organised by the Danish Embassy and supported by The Royal Incorporation Of Architects In Scotland as well as Construction Scotland Innovation Centre. It is also part of The Festival of Architecture.

Chair: Professor Joseph C Akunna, Urban Water Technology Centre, University of Abertay
