Heat in the Streets
Project title: Heat in the Streets: Mapping the lived experience of heat stress of climate-exposed workers towards developing a thriving and resilient City
Team members: James Goodman, Elizabeth Humphrys, Leena Thomas, Nimish Biloria and Freya Newman.
The project will prepare a visual narrative of summer heat-stress experienced by Sydney’s essential outdoor workers, bike couriers and Council staff. It will explore ethnographic and quantitative data captured via sensors, GPS and story-telling apps integrated into an online platform, revealing opportunities for urban interventions (eg, heat refuges, shade, landscaping) to mitigate urban heat effects.
Funding Organisation: The City of Sydney.
