In urban areas all over the world, the risk of flooding and heat stress is increasing because of climate change. That is why spatial measures are needed to make the city cooler and to limit the risk of flooding. But how do you do that in a city where public space is already limited? Where other developments, such as densification and mobility, also call on this limited space at the same time? And where there is a lot going on in the ground because of underground structures,cables and pipes.
There is a need for innovative and integrated solutions to design and to transform public urban space into climate adaptative and pleasant places to stay , also during the hot summer. This is a difficult task. Difficult, but not impossible! LIFE COOL SQUARE for example has been set up to look to look for solutions and ideas to transform the stony and impermeable square on top of a parking garage into an attractive, green and liveable environment. The LIFE COOL Square project has received funding from the LIFE Programme of the European Union.
