Cooling the City Through Trees With Dr Paul Rymer

About this Event

Did you know that Penrith was the hottest place in the world on 7 January 2018? Extreme temperatures are becoming the norm in major cities. There is an urgent need to develop green cities to mitigate harsh summer conditions.

Senior Lecturer at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment, Dr Paul Rymer, will fill us in on the research he has been conducting with Penrith City Council to find out which trees are the best for 'cooling the city'. Find out which tree species are able to survive and thrive in Western Sydney.

Paul Rymer is a Senior Lecturer in Plant Ecological Genetics at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment at Western Sydney University.

This event is part of Inspiring Australia’s Talking Science series as part of the Sydney Science Festival in National Science Week.
