March 9, 2010 at 11:22 am

As a final reminder, those of you wishing to present in London, UK,  this September 15-16, 2010 at the World Green Roof Congress, you  need to submit your abstracts by this Friday, March 12!   Abstracts are invited for submission on a range of topics.

The World Green Roof Congress  is hosted and delivered by CIRIA and Livingroofs.org.   We were there in 2008  and had a grand time in a wonderful setting with many knowledgeable speakers!   The Congress attracted over  300 delegates from around 15 countries and numerous exhibitors.   Hopefully you will attend this year, too, and further your greenroofing experience!

Call for Papers

“The World Green Roof Congress in 2010 will showcase green roofs and green walls, and how we can progress their delivery and achieve their mainstream inclusion in buildings. The Congress will also focus on what can be done to fully exploit the multiple benefits of green roofs and adapt to a changing climate.

The Congress committee are looking for papers, presentations and case studies that demonstrate the delivery of green roofs and green walls providing a diverse range of benefits, and the evidence base to demonstrate that they not only look aesthetically pleasing but bring significant socio and economic benefits.

The Congress is keen to have papers and presentations that cover these themes: 1. International green roof case studies; 2. British green roof case studies; 3. Policy and regulations for green roofs; 4. Up on the roof – urban agriculture, amenity and place making; 5. Planting and growing media for green roofs; 6. Biodiversity benefits; 7. Water management benefits; 8. Green roofs and climate change adaptation; 9. Retrofitting green roofs; and 10. Delivery of green roofs.”

The Call for Papers closes on March 12,  2010 –  learn  all about  the submission guidelines, requirements, and process here:    World Green Roof Congress.   For additional information or any queries, please contact Dusty Gedge  at: dusty@dustygedge.co.uk or Charles Perkin  at: charles.perkin@ciria.org – tel +44 (0)207 5493300.
