As you probably know by now, the 10th annual CitiesAliveÂ 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. Â You know you want to be part of it, so why not take advantage now of the extended the Early Bird Registration? Â Register beforeÂ 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 yearâ€™s CitiesAlive program. Â A living example of legacy urban planning, Chicago has the most green roof coverage in North America. Â This would have been impossible without maintenance measures and performance evaluations to protect investments in green infrastructure and to build exceptional progress. Â The development of performance standards is integral to the growth of any industry.”Â ~Â Green Roofs for Healthy Cities
