Our researchers, students and graduates have teamed up with the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance and councils across Victoria to use green infrastructure to cool towns and cities.
Steve Livesley worked with Meg Caffin from Urban Forest Consulting and current and past PhD and Master of Urban Horticulture students from the University of Melbourne’s School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences, to develop the Cool It project methodology.
The project enables Victorian towns and cities to prioritise urban cooling interventions, such as new tree plantings or permeable pavements.
The project is a partnership between nine councils led by the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance, and funded through the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
