Extreme Heat ToolKit -- City of Evanston
As global temperatures increase, the City of Evanston will experience more extreme heat events. By 2050 Evanston will experience 12—24 extreme heat days annually, 6 times the average between 1951—2014.
With the Extreme Heat ToolKit students will learn about the negative impacts derived from these extreme heat days, in addition to understanding how these issues are navigated from a systemic level in the City of Evanston Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP).
