The LIFE project TreeCheck wins the 2024 LIFE Award in the Climate Action category, for assisting Central European cities in minimising urban heat island effect and its health impacts with the use of green infrastructure. LIFE TreeCheck developed among others software for easier urban planning and an app for the public to recognize trees and raise awareness on the heat reducing potential. The project also brings together knowledge and expertise for new measures, procedures and technologies to help cities cope with extreme temperatures.

More information about LIFE TreeCheck is available from the project’s website.
