Primer for Cool Cities
Passive Cooling Measures and How to Implement Them
Cities need to transform into more equitable, resilient, and prosperous places in the face of rapidly rising temperatures. The Primer shows cities how to do just that.
The One Million Cool Roofs Challenge
A first-of-its-kind, $2 million USD initiative to accelerate the transformation to cool surface in places that need it most.
Addressing Dangerous Heat During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Recommendations from GCCA, Society of Behavioral Medicine and others provide a roadmap for cities to address dangerous heat during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unlock the Benefits of Cool Roofs
Choosing a cool roof could help generate hundreds of millions of dollars, save lives, and make your town a nicer place. Use this interactive feature to explore the problems attributed to excess urban heat, and see how cool surfaces can help.
Cool Cities Are Sustainable Cities
Global Cool Cities Alliance helps cities, countries, and others cost-effectively save energy, improve health and quality of life, and combat climate change by reducing excess urban heat.
Cities taking action to reduce excess heat.
The Cool Cities Network is a partnership with C40 to connect cities and experts to understand, communicate about, and reduce excess urban heat.
Addressing Climate Change with Cool Surfaces
Switching to cool roofs cancels the warming effect of 500 coal power plants worth of GHG emissions. Learn more about the science.
