The expanses of climate change are diverse and several. Cities are facing the impacts of global warming and need to adapt to these changes. Like most cities, Hannover is also affected by the results of climate change. Areas in the city centre, like Steintor, are profoundly influenced by higher temperatures compared to non-urban areas, which disturb the district’s functionality. This paper is analysing the existing phenomenon of heat islands in Steintor and the surrounding areas by suggesting different level solutions in order to defuse this challenge. The identification of the existing weaknesses and opportunities of the district led to the development of a strategic concept for the area. In order to achieve a more integrated response, the suggested ideas include proposals of governance as also more operative solutions; like the enforcement of the existing vegetation, the creation of shading and the unsealing of pavements. These solutions were implemented separately or combined in the district of Steintor and the surrounding area.
