Helping cities to adapt to climate change: The tactical urbanism as a powerful tool to get it!

 

Although tactical urban planning facilitates participatory processes to socialize active mobility projects. This collaborative process seeks to recover and improve urban public spaces with the integration of both mitigation and adaptation measures to climate change. In particular, in terms of adaptation, tactical urban planning is quite useful for raising awareness among children and youth about the value and importance of having comfortable, safe and healthy public spaces and streets. This session seeks to share some results of cases of urban adaptation using methodologies that affect public health and safety, physical and psychological well-being, ecological connectivity, habitability and social organization, for an aesthetic improvement of the landscape, producing resilient, inclusive and recreational spaces.
