Will you come?


Join us at the Parramatta RSL for the national launch of The Australia Institute’s HeatWatch initiative and a preview of HeatWatch: Western Sydney. 

Increasing extreme heat is one of the most urgent impacts of global warming. This groundbreaking Australia Institute initiative provides analysis of projections increasing extreme heat at specific locations across Australia. This launch will provide a preview of newly released research of HeatWatch projections and analysis for Western Sydney.
