We all know that water is fundamental to life and to green infrastructure.


This theme is the highlight of the Green Roofs for Healthy Cities‘ (GRHC) CitiesAlive: 12th Annual Green Roof and Wall Conference in lively Nashville – Music City – and it’s less than two weeks away.

Held at the beautiful brand new Omni Nashville adjacent to the Music City Center on November 12 to 15, 2014 CitiesAlive Green Roof and Wall Conference delegates will explore the many ways in which greenroofs and walls can help manage our water resources more wisely.  See the updated Conference Agenda.

Participants will dig into the science of performance, explore the many interrelationships between energy and water, and investigate the most forward thinking designs and policies that fuel essential innovation in green building and infrastructure.
