Turning the Heat

Our fourth Forefront Fellowship explores how urban practitioners can advance climate justice principles across New York City.

Overview

In partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Resiliency, Fellows will survey neighborhoods, study buildings, interview local and international stakeholders, and produce creative research on mitigating heat. How can we retrofit buildings, improve open space, and strengthen social infrastructure to tackle the threat of extreme heat?
