The questionnaires dealing with adaptation and perceptions regarding winter in cold-climates form an initial component of a lengthier study of a cross-national comparative nature. The focus is on how to encourage children to participate in winter-based outdoor activities and to cultivate a more "positive" attitude toward the cold, snowy season. Such an investigation through a questionnaire has been presented to adults in Japan, Canada and China.

Winter communities have, over generations, evolved . Open image in new window.

Winter communities have, over generations, evolved lifestyles adapted to local climatic conditions and seasonal variations. For this study, winter settlements are defined as places that experience temperatures below 0 °C for several months of the year, normally receive precipitation in the form of snow and experience limited hours of daylight (Pressman 2004). In these places, the winter season has a significant influence on people’s daily outdoor activity. Materials and methods.

Updating Winter: The Importance of Climate-Sensitive Urban Design for Winter Settlements. Winter communities have evolved lifestyles and means suited to living and working with local conditions and seasonal variation. David Chapman, Kristina L. Nilsson, Agatino Rizzo & Agneta Larsson. This study explores urban design principles for winter settlements to identify climate-related conditions that affect soft mobility (walking and cycling) in these communities. However, climate change will cause changes in weather that will require adaptation in such communities.

There is currently a strong scientific consensus that the Earth is warming and that this warming is mainly caused by human activities. This consensus is supported by various studies of scientists' opinions and by position statements of scientific organizations, many of which explicitly agree with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) synthesis reports.
