On April 16, 2019, the municipality of Breda (NL) organized a workshop on Cool Towns and heat stress. During the workshop, ideas, preconditions and bottlenecks were identified for the pilot projects in the city center using maps and photos. The workshop included colleagues from twinning partner Ostend (BE), the Province of Noord-Brabant (NL), the GGD (NL) and from various disciplines within the Municipality of Breda. It was a lively session in which the link was sought with various developments in the city center of Breda.
