About the conference
On November 4, 2021, 13-19pm – on the day the Paris Agreement entered into force.
Resilient and comfortable cities
This summer has been marked by stormy weather - heat, thunderstorms, tornadoes, torrential rains and floods. These phenomena are and, according to scientists, will become more frequent and intense. That is why this year's national expert conference will focus mainly on urban adaptation to these weather extremes, which have much to do with climate change.
The national conference and the announcement of the Adapterra Awards 2021 best projects will present smartly crafted projects that help our cities to cool down and retain water in the open countryside.
Among the guests of this year's conference will be Magdalena Maceková, consultant for municipal adaptation to climate change at the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation, Peter Bednár, architect and urban planner at Jakub Cigler Architects, Martina Sýkorová, urban planner at the University Centre for Energy Efficient Buildings at the Czech Technical University in Prague, Sonja Hackl, manager at the Austrian company Energiebezirk Freistadt, and more.
There will be examples of good practice and a panel debate on how to motivate good rainwater management.
