[ARCHIVED] Webinar: Creating Resilient Public Spaces to Cope with Extreme Heat

8.29.23 Webinar Flyer

Join NVRC and the Cities of Cologne and Wiesbaden, Germany on Tuesday, August 29th from 12 - 1 pm EST for a webinar to learn about ways that the cities have planned and operated public pools (“Freibaeder”) that integrate designs for open spaces to promote multiple recreational uses beyond swimming. These spaces, including Cologne’s “Stadionbad” and Wiesbaden's "Opelbad", are often close to public transportation and incorporate natural shading, a variety of multi-use pools, and other recreational installations, such as playgrounds and dining areas. 

 The webinar will feature case studies on the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of the public spaces as well as a discussion on potential applications in Northern Virginia to mitigate extreme heat, and in turn, build more resilient urban areas across the region.
