Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) has taken a page from Greenroofs.com’s experience with our 2013 and 2011 Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summits: Connecting the Planet + Living Architecture and for the second year will be offering a live webcast of selected presentations at their Grey to Green Conference this Monday, August 25th.
Grey to Green Conference: August 25-26, 2014
Held in downtown Toronto, Steven Peck of GRHC acknowledges the advantages of internet based information sharing and learning:
“The live webcast allows individuals who cannot afford the time or money to travel the ability to take advantage of the excellent and leading-edge content being provided at this event. Dr. Kathleen Wolf from the University of Washington will be sharing her teams’ latest research on green infrastructure, human health and economics; Bill Browning of Terrapin Green will shed light on recent advances in our understanding of biophilic design practice, and on the policy side we have Ontario Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, the Honorable Glen Murray, MPP, joining us and more.” ~ Steven W. Peck, GRP, founder and president, GRHC; chair, Green Infrastructure Ontario Coalition
The conference features 75 expert speakers, as well as tours, professional training courses, a Green Infrastructure Design Charrette, an Ecohealth Workshop on research methods and a networking reception and BBQ on the City of Toronto’s award-winning green roof at Nathan Phillips Square.
