Northern Virginia Regional Commission: Creating Resilient Public Spaces to Cope with Extreme Heat

Join the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) and the Cities of Cologne and Wiesbaden, Germany on Tuesday, August 29th from 12 – 1 pm EST for a webinar to learn about ways that the cities have planned and operated public pools (“Freibaeder”) that integrate designs for open spaces to promote multiple recreational uses beyond swimming. The webinar will feature case studies on the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of the public spaces as well as a discussion on potential applications in Northern Virginia to mitigate extreme heat, and in turn, build more resilient urban areas across the region.
