Call put out for green roof data

The World Green Roofs Congress committee is looking for papers and case studies that illustrate delivery, innovative design and socio-economic benefits. co-founder Dusty Gedge is partnering with the Construction Industry Research and Information Association to deliver the 2010 congress.

The exhibition and conference held in London will showcase green roofs and their contribution to sustainability and climate change adaptation.

The congress wants to find papers and presentations that cover themes including: policy and regulations for green roofs; urban agriculture, amenity and place making; planting and growing media for green roofs; biodiversity; water management; climate change adaptation; and retrofitting.

It is particularly interested in approaches that overcome some of the challenges of delivery. Abstracts must be submitted by 26 February, with notification of acceptance on 19 March.
