Despite being an important factor in urban development, culture is a frequently underrated issue having little impact on strategic or territorial documentation. Healthy Cities of the Czech Republic jointly with expert partners from Culture Matters and Kvas were seeking solutions to this situation. As a result, two new methodologies are being prepared and will be tested as a pilot project in Litomerice and Jihlava Healthy Cities. The testing of both methodologies will be financed from a Healthy Cities project supported by the Operational Programme “Employment”. Once the testing finished, they will be offered for use to all Healthy Cities interested in this theme.(10.11.2016)

The preparation of the Strategy on adaptation to climate change of the Healthy city of Chrudim continues with discussing analytical findings and possible actions. In early October, a working group made up of city representatives met to discuss major risks stemming from expected climate change and major adaptation actions in the city and its surroundings. In the future, it is expected that the city will have to cope with the rise in both average and seasonal temperatures, decline in rainfall mainly in summer and more extreme weather events such as drought, heat waves, floods or heavy rain. The strategy is not supposed to respond to one particular threat which may suddenly occur during a year, but to monitor climate trends and be prepared for as much of these extreme weather events as possible.(1.11.2016)
