February 17-18: 5th International Green Roof Congress, Kuwait City, Kuwait

 

Save the date for this exciting congress which will be held from February 17th to February 18th 2018 in the Al Shaheed Park Kuwait, a new icon of Green Roof architecture. The fifth edition of IGRA´s prestigious congress series deals with the special challenges of Green Roofs in dry climates. More than one third of the world population already lives in these expanding regions, without considering the global metropolitan areas which often are grappling with the same problems. The performance of Green Roofs in these special environments is strongly connected with the availability and scarcity of water & the limited types of plants, which are able to tolerate these harsh weather conditions - therefore the water & plantation issue is a common thread of the congress presentations and discussions. Join us for a top-level program focusing on innovative new technologies, stunning architecture, pioneering urban development projects and many opportunities to network with international leaders in the field of Green Roofs.
