|Activity Title/Topic:||Assessment of urban climate vulnerability and identification of solutions|
|Duration of Activity:||120 minutes|
|Learning Outcome:||At the end of this activity, you should be able to identify the main vulnerabilities of your home, your street and your city to climate and identify adaptation options that can be taken to reduce their vulnerability.|
|Materials Required:||Paper and writing material (alternatively, it can be done on a computer), access to an internet search engine (computer, smartphone, tablet, ...)|
|Aim of Activity:||Assess how the urban environment in which you live (or that is closest to you) is vulnerable to climate risks and how it can be adapted to increase its resilience to current and future climate, identifying the most advantageous and sustainable solutions.|
On a sheet of paper, identify with topics which climate hazards the town where you live (or, if you live in a rural area, the nearest town) is exposed to. For example:
Based on what you have already learned and researched about climate change in your region, mark with a symbol how climate change might increase (+), decrease (-), or not significantly (=) change these risks.
Based on your memory or a brief news search for extreme events related to these risks in your region, highlight the three types of risks that could currently be most dangerous for your safety.
Based on the elements you have collected in the previous steps, conclude your analysis by answering the following questions:
