Our Greenroofs & Walls of the World Virtual Summit 2015 ~ Connecting the Planet with Living Architecture is open!  I’m sharing my short Opening Address from yesterday with everyone:

Watch videos from 30+ international speakers including keynotes from landscape designer Diana Balmori, PhD, FASLA, IFLA in New York; environmentalist and researcher Stephan Brenneisen, PhD in Basel; and bioclimatic architect & eco-master planner Ken Yeang, PhD in London.  See them now during the week so that you can engage with the authors during the Live Social Weekend Hangout.

Held this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday April 10, 11 & 12, our Live Social Weekend Hangout is when you’ll connect at the:

  • Rare Earth Auditorium for live Q & A Sessions with our speakers
  • Expo Pavilion and visit with industry professionals and see their projects and products on Saturday & Sunday
  • “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere!” Networking Lounge where you can join different chat groups including the informal JobLinks Fair on Saturday & Sunday to learn about job opportunities
  • Tremco Meeting Room and learn much more about our wonderful Rare Earth Sponsor for the 3rd time running!

Earn various CEUs at The Classroom, and up to 10 GRP CEUs for watching the awesome speaker videos. As an attendee you can also further your own work by sending us a 3-minute “Inspiration Nook” video which can be uploaded at any time.

As an attendee you have many opportunities available not only to enhance your understanding of our fast-paced world of greenroofs & greenwalls but also to share your own thoughts and experiences with colleagues – it’s a two-way street on this information highway!

Where else could you meet up with people located around the world at one time?  Here are some of your benefits of registering:

  • Watch and re-watch video presentations from 30+ international speakers on many different subjects in the Rare Earth Auditorium through May 31, 2015.  See the Agenda.  And earn up to 10 GRP CEU’s from Green Roofs for Healthy Cities!  See the rest online.
  • Better yet, participate in the speakers’ live Q & A Sessions during The Live Social Weekend Hangout on Friday, Saturday, & Sunday April 10, 11 & 12.  Interact and create a dialogue via video (first come, first served) and text chatting.  Ask these far-flung experts and practitioners questions that you might never be able to see at a physical conference!  See the Agenda-at-a-Glance for times – more to be finalized.
  • Create your own under 3-minute video about your work, research, ideas, etc., and highlight it in the Inspiration Nook – become a thought leader yourself!  It doesn’t need to be fancy or complicated – just get the word out about you.  You may even have something all ready to go.  Submit it in time for The Live Social Weekend Hangout and we’ll add you to the Agenda and Speakers pages.  Where else could you have the opportunity to expose your work to hundreds of people?
  • Learn about awesome people, products, and services in the Expo Pavilion on Saturday & Sunday during the Live Social Weekend Hangout.  Visit and chat with our wonderful Sponsors and Exhibitors in their booths, watch their videos, download their info and pick their brains.
  • Connect with friends and make new ones at the “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere!” Networking Lounge – which, by the way, is actually open 24/7 through May 31st.  Start a public chat and see what happens.  Tell your colleagues to join you there at a specific time and day for a private chat and connect via video if you want to.  Looking or a job or do you have one available?  Network here at the JobLinks Fair on Saturday & Sunday during the Live Social Weekend Hangout.  Meet some of the Greenroofs.com Contributing Editors!
  • Visit personally with insightful industry leaders and reps at the Tremco Meeting Room in an exclusive, private setting.
  • Do all this with any computer or mobile device.  Take the Virtual Summit 2015 with you!
