July event will be at University of Greenwich
The University of Greenwich Green Roofs and Living Walls Centre is hosting a three-day conference on the economic, environmental and social benefits provided by living walls.
The conference, which takes place from 6-8 July, will bring together researchers, built environment professionals and policy makers, ‘to discuss ways of maximising the ecosystem services of living walls’. Topics will include the enhanced thermal performance of buildings, reduction of the urban heat island effect, habitat creation, mitigation of air and noise pollution, stormwater attenuation, novel opportunities for urban food production, and well-being.
The conference is intended for living wall manufacturers and installers, urban designers, architects, landscape architects, garden designers, environmental agencies, developers, planning authorities, community action groups, nurserymen and students.
