World Congress of Building Greening

June 27 - June 29

Unfortunately, the World Congress on Green Building planned for May 2022 cannot be held as a “world” congress this year either, as the travel options of the international audience are still too limited for the known reasons. That is why we have decided not to hold the World Congress until 2023. The new congress date has already been set: June 27th – 29th, 2023 in Berlin. Save the Date! More information will follow soon!

With the opening statements from the Federal Minister for Building, Klara Geywitz, and the State Secretary, Dr. Silke Karcher (Berlin Senate Department for the Environment and Climate Protection), as well as the keynote speeches by the architect Christoph Ingenhoven and the French botanist Patrick Blanc, there will be a brilliant start to the congress on June 27th, 2023 in Berlin.

Also, 90 lectures on current topics relating to roof, facade and interior greening are planned for June 27-28, 2023 in five parallel series of lectures. On June 29, 2023, excursions to various Berlin practice objects will take place.

Organized by Bundesverband GebäudeGrün e.V. (BuGG) with the support of WGIN and EFB
