We first reported on it last March, and now the International Green Technology Symposium (Green Roof, Green City, Rain Harvesting)  is around the corner.

Held next week in Indore, India on October 31 through November 2, 2011, the Symposium is organized by Professor Suresh Billore, PhD, DSc of  GREEN TAKNIKI – Restoring Nature – the  International Symposium  on  Green Technology and held under the auspices of the World Green Infrastructure Network (WGIN) and is co-hosted by the Mayor of Indore.

This prestigious greenroof symposium is the first of its kind in India!

“Green Technology is the foremost tool to repair urbanization damage in bringing back shift in cliumate change, cool building, biodiversity, energy conservation, flood management, noise-dust-toxic gas reduction, food and water production and creation of new markets for green goods and services.” ~ International Green Technology Symposium

Twenty international and national speakers will be presenting on a variety of subjects.  WGIN President Professor Manfred Köhler of  Germany will be in attendance, along with Hitesh Doshi of Canada, and  Paul Kephart, Dhiru Thadani,  and Dr. Karen Weber of  Earth Our Only Home,  Foundation for a Green Future, and  Boston GreenFest of the U.S, among other notables – see the Speakers page here.

Details on the Symposium and participation can be found  at their website:  www.greenindia2011.org, and in the attached updated  International Green Technology Symposium 2011 flyer.

Aramis and I would have loved to have participated, but there’s just too much going on here now.  The day tour on November 2 and 4-day post-conference tour option are going to be awesome, and we will sorely miss it!  If you are going, please take lots of photos and keep us posted!

Happy Greening in India and beyond,
