September 10, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Greenroofs.com is once again a Media Sponsor for the 2010 World Green Roof Congress in London on September 15 and 16, 2010, and we’re excited about the impressive line-up of renowned, international speakers set to deliver an outstanding program addressing Green Roofs for a Changing Climate.  

Aramis and I made it to the inaugural Congress in 2008, but unfortunately, a heavy travelling schedule this year didn’t make it possible for us to attend.   Although we won’t have a booth at this year’s Congress, two of our Contributing Editors, Ed Snodgrass and Christine Thuring, will be in attendance.   Please find them to say hello; it’s great to meet face-to-face!

Ed Snodgrass will be speaking at 11:25 on Wednesday, September  15 when he’ll present “Green Roofs and Ecosystem Services – How plant and media choices can change our urban environment for the better.”

Keynote speakers include:
– Tom Liptan, City of Portland, Oregon, USA
– Ed Snodgrass, Green Roof Plants, USA
– Dusty Gedge, Livingroofs.org, UK
– Stephen Brenneisen, Zurich University of Applied Science, Switzerland
– Nigel Dunnett, University of Sheffield, UK
