FROM URBAN GREY TO URBAN GREEN24.03.2012
World Green Roof Congress, Copenhagen: 19-21 September 2012
The 2012 World Green Roof Congress in Copenhagen will bring together leading architects, designers and practitioners form around the globe to highlight the need to green the Urban Grey to green.
Copenhagen’s Green Roof Policy will provide a unique opportunity for architects, master planners and urban designers to understand the opportunities and challenges of greening cities through the use of green roof technologies. This will become increasingly important throughout the world as the 21st century is the century of the mega-city.
Cities are generally dry, hot, polluted and, with climate change, increasingly affected by excessive Urban Heat Island and flash flooding. Green roofs are already recognised in many cities of the world as an important mechanism to help cities adapt to climate change and provide environmental health to urban areas.
With the support of the Danish Ministry of the Environment, the Lord Mayor and Technical and Environmental Mayor of Copenhagen, the event will attract speakers and delegates from around the globe.
