Interview focal points
The interviews focused on the following points:
- Affectedness of the city and relevance of the heat problem
- Structural adjustments in the city administration in connection with heat
- Measures/solutions implemented to reduce heat
- Challenges and obstacles in implementing solutions
The four students were in Switzerland from the end of August to mid-October, where they conducted the interviews at the beginning of September. Both the interviews and the final report with all the results and conclusions were written in their native language, English. During their stay in Switzerland, the students were supported by supervisors from their university as well as by Grolimund + Partner AG.

Webinar - Presentation of the results
Due to their return to the USA shortly after the end of the project and the start of their new term, the students were unable to present their results to the project participants in person. Therefore, G+P organized a webinar with the consent of the students to present the project and the results on Wednesday, November 29. All project participants as well as representatives of authorities from other Swiss cities and municipalities were invited to this webinar.
