Passive cooling can take the shape of simple technology additions - external shading, cool roofs, green roofs and corridors, urban parks - or of more structural interventions, such as improved building design and insulation, orientation and windows, and the use of biomaterials. These solutions also have great resilience benefits: reducing the urban heat island effect in urban environments increases the comfort, health, and safety of residents, with greatest benefits reaped by those who lack access to cooling.

In this session, organized within the #ThisIsCool Webinar Series, experts from the field discussed a newly published brief on “Not Passing on Passive Cooling: How philanthropy can help accelerate the climate benefits” and share insights on how we can accelerate the deployment of passive cooling solutions globally, especially as part of a green recovery.
