Climate Change Adaptation, including Overheating

Climate Change Adaptation and Avoiding Over-Heating

This course will be developed in late 2015 and publicised when available. 

Emerging evidence suggests that serious problems are emerging with over-heating and adaptation to climate change in housing and the built environment, caused by a range of factors – these problems will expand as the impacts of climate change become increasingly evident. 

Research by the Good Homes Alliance (GHA) and others which has assessed the evidence from developers, housing associations and researchers suggests that problems can be caused - or solved - at various stages of the design and construction process, as well as in the use or management of our homes.

The course will draw on the practical lessons that can be learnt from examples of good practice. It will focus on how over-heating and other climate adaptation challenges can be successfully prevented and overcome, and how low energy homes can be designed, built and used in ways that allow them, and us, to adapt to climate change.
