We have set an ambitious goal from the City: by 2030 we want to be climate-robust. One of the objectives is to make the underground of Ghent work like a sponge. A rain shower that occurs once every 20 years may not cause damage to buildings, roads or other urban infrastructure in Ghent, now and in the future.
Management of urban heat islands – role of micro forests in urban settings, education and understanding related to climate change and pollution, urban well-being.
How can the monitoring of air quality be carried out precisely? How can this inform local decision-making? And development of sustainable development policies?
This challenge is concerned with air quality and climate change across the Bordeaux metropolitan area and the municipalities covering the extensive campus area. It will involve the installation of sensors, data collection and analysis.
