The FIU Institute of Environment's Sea Level Solutions Center and the FIU
Office of Global Learning present:
Environmental Sustainability Sessions: Extreme Heat
Did you know that cities tend to be hotter than the surrounding rural area?
Combined with global warming and urbanization, urban temperatures will rise, threatening human health, straining energy resources, and challenging our local economy.
Florida currently has an average of 25 dangerous heat days each year. By
2050, it is projected to see 130 such days each year, more than any other state (Climate Central).
Join for an in depth dialogue with guest speakers from CATALYST Miami and
The Family Action Network Movement to learn about the causes and impacts of extreme heat on our communities and environment, and learn what you can do to help. Join us to participate in citizen science heat monitoring events.
To participate in citizen science,
attendees should contact Maria Del Mar Trejos at FIU (email@example.com) or Pia at FAMN (firstname.lastname@example.org) to pick up a heat monitoring sensor.
