Summer is here and it’s time for fall conference planning, starting with the World Green Infrastructure Congress 2013 in gorgeous Nantes, France this upcoming September!

Aramis and I will be attending as I’ll be presenting Haven Kiers’ and my 7th annual Greenroofs.com Top 10 List of Hot Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design.  Although we’ve been to Paris several times, we haven’t ventured too far, so we’re really excited about spending some time in the lovely, picturesque town of Nantes.

May 8, 2012 at 11:37 am

As you probably know by now, the 10th annual CitiesAlive  greenroof and greenwall conference will be held in Chicago, Illinois on October 17 through October 20, 2012.

Green Roofs for Healthy Cities has many exciting plans to celebrate the return to the site of the inaugural conference and trade show – The Windy City.  You know you want to be part of it, so why not take advantage now of the extended the Early Bird Registration?  Register before  May 15, 2012!!!

“For this milestone 10th Anniversary occasion, CitiesAlive 2012 will look back to celebrate the spectacular growth experienced by the green roof and wall industry over the last ten years, and look forward to showcase the most leading-edge design, policy, and research work in the green roof and wall industry.

Building a Legacy of Outstanding Performance is the primary theme for this year’s CitiesAlive program.  A living example of legacy urban planning, Chicago has the most green roof coverage in North America.  This would have been impossible without maintenance measures and performance evaluations to protect investments in green infrastructure and to build exceptional progress.  The development of performance standards is integral to the growth of any industry.”  ~  Green Roofs for Healthy Cities

CitiesAlive 2012 is being held at the historic Congress Plaza hotel in downtown Chicago. See the short welcome video “Chicago Invites YOU to CitiesAlive 2012” hosted by Karen Weigert, Chief Sustainability Officer  on the CitiesAlive website, courtesy of the City of Chicago  below:

They say that “Early birds can save $239” – sounds like a deal to me!
