Watch “Mexico City’s Green Plan & Green Roofs” – “Areas Verdes de la Ciudad de Mexico & Azoteas Naturadas” by Tanya Müller García from Our Virtual Summit 2013

December 18, 2014 at 1:03 pm

In anticipation of Greenroofs.com’s spectacular 2015 Virtual Summit on April 6 through May 31 – and in order to familiarize you with the event – we are now making the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2013 videos publicly available on our GreenroofsTV channel on YouTube to all free of charge.

Today we have the pleasure to air the Individual Video “Mexico City’s Green Plan & Green Roofs” – “Areas Verdes de la Ciudad de Mexico & Azoteas Naturadas” by Tanya Müller García, Secretary of the Environment for Mexico City, Federal District.  We’ve known Tanya for many years since she was the founder of AMENA, the National Mexican Greenroof Association.  She also held the position of vice-president  for WGIN, the World Green Infrastructure Network, up until recently since her current position within the Mexico City government does not offer the time required for this duty at present.

Tanya and AMENA hosted the WGIN 2010 Mexico City World Green Roof Congress – El Congreso Mundial de Azoteas Verdes Mexico 2010 where I presented our Greenroofs.com Top 10 List of Hot Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design.  The congress was executed wonderfully and everyone had a great time – read about it here.
