Climate adaptation

2018-2019

The Antwerp Smart Zone is using this heat and water experiment to investigate how people, citizens, companies or local authorities can be encouraged into climate-friendly behaviour through technology such as Augmented Reality or games. 

Can technology initiate dialogue about climate-friendly measures? Or could it even lead to green investments? And will these measures and investments eventually lead to a climate-robust city?

This experiment preferably tries to link new technology to existing or planned initiatives such as garden streets, the civilian budget or local green plans.
