Mark and I headed to north to Toronto for the International Green Roof Congress with Cities Alive! below are a few pictures of the events, good cafes and green roofs. The last slide is beautiful intensive roof that was located at the sheraton center hotel where the congress was held. There were speakers from across the globe and many new exciting projects to keep our eyes out for.
GROWWEST fosters regional dialogue for encouraging green roof policy; forwarding the design, construction and performance of green roofs in Colorado; and brings together parties united for the green roof cause. As a grass roots organization, it is Growwest’s goal to convince the public and politicians that government policies favoring green roofs are good for the environment and the bottom line.
Green roofs are an integral component of sustainable development in the arid West.
