Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the City of Boston are pleased to announce the Fourth Annual International Greening Rooftops for Sustainable Communities Conference, Awards & Trade Show scheduled for May 10-12, 2006 in Boston, MA. This event brings together international experts from diverse fields across North America and around the world. Conference participants discuss the many benefits of green roofs, share new research findings and provide information on the latest designs, implementation techniques and products. It is a great opportunity to broaden networks and develop new business contacts while building more sustainable cities through green roof implementation.
The 2005 Conference in Washington, DC featured more than 60 speakers from nine different countries presenting papers on research, design, implementation and policy to more than 800 delegates. Sixty-five exhibitors showcased the latest products and services now available to the rapidly expanding green roof industry.
A call for submissions of speaker abstracts are due September 30, 2005. The requirements are a 300-word abstract and a 50-word biography. Submit your research project, your innovative green roof project, or your green roof idea to the GRHC committees for review. Composed of industry professionals, researchers and experts, the GRHC Committee members will jury all submissions for acceptance in our International Conference.
