By Steven Peck

This week  Green Roofs for Healthy Cities launched the web site and agenda for our 9th Annual CitiesAlive conference and it’s going to be a great way to finish off the year.

Our co-hosts are the City of Philadelphia and the  Pennsylvania  Horticultural Society, two of the key players in the communities planning to spend $2 billion on living green infrastructure technologies to address their stormwater management challenges and revitalize their community.

This year’s theme is Restoring Urban Waters and will have designs, scientific research papers and policies all devoted to exploring how living architecture technologies such as green roofs and walls can play a major role in addressing stormwater challenges.

We’ll also get together and discuss emerging issues and opportunities such as growing media standards, integrated design practices, and the research needed to increase indoor greening.

The CitiesAlive: The 9th Annual Green Roof & Wall Conference is November 30-Dec 2, 2011.  Save the date and don’t forget that the deadline for this year’s Awards of Excellence Submissions is July 6.

See you in Philly…   SWP
