The last two summers, the capital of Estonia, Tallinn, was hit by long-lasting heat waves.
Tallinn, Estonia, faced prolonged heat waves in recent summers due to climate change. Adaptation measures involve improving micro-climate factors through urban planning, expanding green spaces, and supporting vulnerable groups. The KNOWING project aims to mitigate heat wave risks in areas like Väike-Õismäe, providing recommendations for resilient urban living. This knowledge can extend to similar Eastern European regions, raising climate change awareness and preparedness.
