Urban communities face urban heat island effect, on top of existing health outcome disparities due to socioeconomic inequities. As cities experience more frequent and longer periods of extreme heat, some are working toward solutions through equity-focused, community-based approaches. This session will feature Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s Beat the Heat initiative along with the Nature’s Cooling Systems project in Phoenix, Arizona to provide insight into planning and implementing strategies to address extreme heat dangers at the neighborhood level.
