After the successful first edition launched last year, WGIN’s European Green Infrastructure Day (EGIDay) is back for another exciting series of discussions on how green roofs and walls can contribute to the European Green Deal and the European Union’s climate goals for 2030 and 2050.
The European Green Infrastructure Day is a policy conference dedicated to exploring the state of affairs of urban green infrastructure in the European Union. The event aims to gather EU policymakers, researchers, green roof industry leaders, local authorities and NGOs to discuss how to tap into the multiple benefits of green infrastructure for Europe’s climate and energy transition.
This event is organised by the EU Chapter of the World Green Infrastructure Network.
