World Green Roof Congress preview

The 2010 World Green Roof Congress will take place on 15 - 16 September in London with this year's focus being on 'green roofs for a changing climate.'

The two day congress, organised by CIRIA in partnership with livingroofs.org, will promote the delivery of green roofs as a way of adapting to a changing climate. 

Attendees will be given an overview of green roofs and international delegates will share their experiences, as well as showcasing the latest innovations in green roof delivery.

Key-note speakers include Douglas McNab from the London Borough of Islington and Aidan Lane from Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd, who will be discussing UK policy and delivery.

Peter Bishop, group director for design, development and environment at the London  Development Agency will talk about green roofs in London, while Dusty Gedge, director of livingroofs.org and Stephen Brenneisen from the University of Applied Science in Zurich, will celebrate ten years of collaborating together to promote green roofs for biodiversity.

The event will take place at the offices of Allen & Overy LLP, in Bishopsgate, London which features a series of green tiers and roof gardens overlooking the plaza below.
