October 20, 2022 was the closing conference of Cool Towns in Ostend (BE). This brought an end to a period of four years of collaboration between 14 European partners.

Cool Towns has provided new insights into combating heat stress in inner cities. A number of useful tools have been developed for this, such as a measurement protocol, roadmap, a heat stress atlas and an intervention catalogue. Cities can use these to determine which measures they can take to combat heat stress.

This website will remain online for a number of years, so that everyone can view and download the tools.
