Brooklyn to host the North American Green Roofs conference 2015

Cities Alive, the conference dedicated to green roof research, policy, design, and technology in North America, will celebrate its 13th year by coming to NYC this October. The conference moves to a different city each year to help familiarize our metropolises with this technology.

The conference will include the Harlem Design Charrette, which involves the green infrastructural re-envisioning of blocks of Harlem (under the aegis of the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem); as well as multiple tracks of presentations over 4 days including research on biophilic principles of design. 

The final day will be dedicated to tours of NYC green roofs.
