Abstract

Cities and all the activities carried out in an urban environment significantly influence climate change causes but, at the same time, they are greatly affected by them. For these reasons, urban areas not only represent one of the problems, but also the main field of application of intervention strategies to be developed in order to mitigate the negative effects of climate change. Among the strategies to contrast climate change, the adaptation to its environmental effects has been pushed right into the background in scientific debate, mainly due to the difficulty experienced in transferring urban climatology into methods that can be easily implemented by planners to draw up land use plan.This volume is an attempt to strengthen the cultural background of urban planner, establishing solid connections with urban climatology, in order to build a new language, able to consider the relationships between urban morphology and climate change adaptation strategies to be implemented.

Abstract

This edited book aims to address the issues of risk and climate change in geographical education at different school levels, offering both theoretical thoughts and the proposal of teaching activities. The discussed issues are often on the margins of teaching and geography studies in Italy, although they play a pivotal role in the understanding of territories and in the shaping of economic, social and environmental policies. The aim of the volume is to recognize the geography of risk as a relevant field of research and teaching, that needs to be implemented in Italy. The chapters see the contribution of different stakeholders, like Civil Protection, NGOs (Save the Children and Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre), municipalities and universities, trying to challenge and reason on the role of geography in the dissemination and teaching of the topics. The experiences and activities proposed provide a first tool for school and educators, which can have practical implications as well as stimulate further works on the topic. In particular, different risks (climate change, earthquakes, multi-hazard, etc.) and methodologies are discussed, offering some examples that can be replicated and further developed by teachers at different levels.
