In anticipation of Greenroofs.com’s spectacular 2015 Virtual Summit on April 6 through May 31 – and in order to familiarize you with the event – we are now making the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2013 videos publicly available on our GreenroofsTV channel on YouTube to all free of charge.
Today we have the pleasure to air the “Reflections of a Green Roof Campaigner and Visions of the Future” Keynote Video by Dusty Gedge, Co-founder of Livingroofs.org and President of the European Federation of Green Roof Associations (EFB), among others.
Dusty has been a frequent collaborator of Greenroofs.com, contributing several Guest Feature Articles over the years. And, he was an early supporter of our inaugural 2011 Virtual Summit where he participated in the “Biodiversity and Greenroofs” Panel Presentation with Christine Thuring, Nathalie Baumann, and Gary Grant.
“London, UK. Dusty Gedge is a green roof campaigner and designer, who has actively promoted green roofs in the UK since 1997. He has designed a number of seminal roofs and helped develop the London Green Roof Policy. He is also the current President of the European Federation of Green Roof Associations (EFB), established three PhD studies on green roof research, and has a particular interest in biodiversity on green roofs. He is also a writer, blogger and sometimes TV presenter.
