SFG Anniversary Conference “Green City of the Future”

June 22, 2022

We will tackle things together and design our grandchild-friendly city of the future!


The green infrastructure and green buildings in particular are of great importance and are enjoying increasing popularity. Their ecosystem services such as evaporative cooling, shading and meteoric water retention have a regulating effect during heat waves or heavy rainfall. They help us to tackle current and future challenges such as biodiversity promotion, urban heat islands, air and quality of life and to actively shape the green city of the future.
