10 Mar Canada calling
Our planet’s changing climate calls for action on all continents and in all regions of the world.
The local impacts of climate change, particularly at urban scales, are clearly visible and now a reality in the United States and Canada, even if the need to adapt is more urgent in other areas of the world.
With North America’s urban climate also changing as a result of heat islands, pollution and increased precipitation, its main urban centres need to be reinvented.
Laboratories at Columbia University in New York and at NASA in Huntsville, Alabama, envision setting up research and development teams with CLIMATE CITY in the United States, thus laying the foundation for deploying CLIMATE CITY services in more than 10 North-American cities, particularly to anticipate medium- and long-term local climate phenomena and to help them develop strategies for coping with climate change.
To this end, CLIMATE CITY SAS is now looking at establishing a base in North America, most likely in Québec to combine the proximity of aeronautical and space expertise with a science and technology community sensitive to key climate change issues. Considering another field, the operator has already found solid partners in Montreal, notably for the filming of its new Web series devoted to raising awareness of climate change. The first episode was filmed at the start of the month with 5600K, a studio based in Trois Rivières.
