Green roofs and walls have a vast, but unrealized potential to address many of the fundamental challenges facing New York City. CitiesAlive is heading to the Big Apple for the first time in October 2015. The conference will draw an anticipated 1000 delegates and will work to explore and showcase underutilized living architecture opportunities. These include:
Maintaining and improving community and individual health and well-being.
Preparing to address climate change and severe weather.
Contributing to quality affordable housing.
Cleaning NYC’s waterways.
The walls and the roofs of New York City provide hundreds of square miles of surfaces that can be used to help address many of these pressing issues. CitiesAlive delegates will tour leading edge projects, research facilities and see some unique sites such as the High Line and Brooklyn Grange. Technical sessions are directed towards design, research and policy communities and will focus on the latest scientific research, products, and policies all of which are critical to meeting the challenge of promoting healthy and resilient people and places in New York City.
New York City is filled with hundreds of design firms and thousands of designers. New York has over 8 million residents and the regional population exceeds 21 million. New York City is home to more than 35 GRPs and boasts numerous Award of Excellence winning projects.
We expect a sell-out crowd at CitiesAlive NYC in 2015, so book your sponsorship early!
