Cooling the City

Every year, Sydney swelters through its summers, and they are getting hotter. We need to cool the urban spaces. We want to tackle this dilemma and create a more liveable city.

Cooling the City Strategy

This Strategy aims to identify strategies to cool our City and region in a way that improves liveability and prioritises protection from heat for people and communities.
