Climate change means hot days and heatwaves are more intense, and happen more often.
In WA we had our hottest summer on record in 2022, and they will likely be getting hotter in coming years. Extreme heat is the number one cause of death from natural disasters in Australia.
It is critical to make information about how to keep yourself and your community safe during extreme heat easy to find and simple to understand and use. This kind of information saves lives.
As such, we’ve done our best to summarise some of the most important and useful information from as many sources as we could find, and put them all in one place.
This resource was created by Year 10 students from John Forrest Secondary College as part of an assessment for their STEM Sustainability course, and is being hosted by Climate Justice Union.
In this resource we've listed a bunch of different ways you can make your home sustainable and improve energy efficiency, including providing a summary and ranking of each according to their difficulty, cost, and how beneficial they are to your homes energy efficiency.
We've also provided some expected averages costs for each change.
BONUS: We've included two examples of homes in Western Australia which have incorporated many of these changes.
