Become a Citizen Scientist

We’ve teamed up with RMIT and the University of New South Wales to measure microclimate in City of Port Phillip and we need your help. We’re looking for 100 enthusiastic volunteers to give two hours of your time between 22 - 24 February 2019.

With the number of extreme hot days predicted to increase significantly over the next few decades in all Australian cities, the results from this study will provide data required for citizens to understand, mitigate and adapt to extreme heat.

Through participating you will be well-informed to respond to extreme heat through an understanding of design features, greenery and materials affecting the local urban microclimate.

It’s also an excellent opportunity for children as young as 12 to participate in an impactful science project.
