Happy World Green Roof Day 2023!

Why Do You Think Greenroofs Are Important?
“Greenroofs, as just one piece of regenerative and climate-positive design, are such an elegant architectural solution providing so many different environmental, economic, psychological, and aesthetic benefits and ameliorating so many adverse construction consequences for the building owner, its occupants, and the surrounding flora, fauna, and human ecosystems.” ~ Linda S. Velazquez, ASLA, LEED AP, GRP Greenroofs.com Founder & Publisher
Using the hashtag #WGRD2023 you, too, can get involved and help us spread the word by sharing roof tours, events, and your own greenroof projects – or just your favorite ones, with images, videos, and commentary across social media. With so many fantastic greenroofs from which to choose, have fun with it!

World Green Roof Day Organizers
World Green Roof Day was created by Chris Bridgman of Bridgman & Bridgman in part to push the establishment of the new GRO (Green Roof Organisation, website live soon) in the UK but in the main to celebrate greenroofs around the world.
World Green Roof Day WGRD was quickly embraced by all GRO members including Dusty Gedge, President of the European Federation of Green Roof Associations(EFB) and Founder of Livingroofs.org.
“World Green Roof Day was founded by Chris Bridgman & Dusty Gedge, veterans of the sustainable living roof arena. Each year, they’re devoted to helping World Green Roof Day educate others on the benefits of green roofs to our climate, cities and wellbeing.
The founders are also board members of the Green Roof Organisation [GRO], a UK trade body that’s responsible for the green roof code of practice. By celebrating green roofs, there is hope across the globe that we can all come together and enjoy green spaces and all they have to offer.”
