Let’s Create Green Roofs in Cambridge: An Online Forum

October 20, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

People from around the globe will gather via zoom to hear local and national experts talk about why green roofs are happening across the country. We’ll learn why green roofs are a key component in addressing the climate change emergency and offering cities and towns a significant tool in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

FEATURING: Leading authorities working in the field of green roof solutions

  • Lindsay Allen, Rooftop Farm Manager at Boston Medical Center
  • Pete Ellis, Senior Project Manager of Recover Green Roofs
  • Elizabeth Hart Morris, President of GRiT (Green Roof info Think-tank), a leading force in passing Portland, Oregon’s Ecoroof Requirement, a mandate for vegetated roofing

Discover why greening roofs will help Cambridge to clean the air, increase biodiversity, add layers of flood mitigation, open up possibilities for food security through neighborhood rooftop farms and gardens, and beautify our city. Explore the exciting green roof possibilities for your own town or city.
