We are excited to launch a campaign that aims at lowering temperatures and making life more bearable for inhabitants in Turkey. This webinar is part of GEF’s Cities as Places of Hope Project with the support of Green Thought Association.

About the event:

Heatwaves are expected to increase in the coming years, posing a threat to people and ecosystems. This campaign will focus on providing city actors with an insight to create an environment for cooperation and contribute to the development of ambitious actions against heatwaves.

The “Heat Waves Campaign” will be broadcasted on digital platforms at the end of June 2021. During the 2-month campaign period, you will be able to follow our latest updates through infographics, blog posts, articles, social media channels, Instagram reels shares, and news programs of media channels in Turkey.

The first event will focus on local government actions, the steps they can take, and the policies they will implement regarding heatwaves in Turkey.
