In Russia, there are many cities above the Arctic Circle that aren’t very comfortable to live in, to say the least. In such cities, paved roads are already enough to make people happy. Artem Nikolaev, a student at ITMO’s Institute of Design & Urban Studies, wants to change the situation in small Russian cities for the better. He shared his ideas with ITMO.NEWS.
This end of February has become St. Petersburg’s coldest in the past several decades. According to Alexander Kolesov, Chief Meteorologist at the Northwest Center of the Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, we last had such cold weather back in 1955. Europe experienced a drop in temperature as well; actually, the recent cyclone even got a nickname, the Beast from the East. So, what is happening to the climate, and how will these global changes affect St. Petersburg? During a lecture at the Institute of Design & Urban Studies, Artem Pavlovsky, climatologist and member of the State Research and Design Center of St. Petersburg Master Plan, talked about the reasons behind climate change, and its effect on the development of urban territories.
