CitiesAlive is Coming to the Big Apple!
Green roofs and walls have a vast, but unrealized potential to address many of the fundamental challenges facing New York City. For the first time CitiesAlive is heading to the Big Apple October 5-8, 2015. New York City is home to more than 35 GRPs and boasts numerous Award of Excellence winning projects. The conference will draw an anticipated 1,000 delegates and will explore and showcase underutilized living architecture opportunities.
The walls and roofs of New York City provide hundreds of square miles of surfaces that can be used to help address many pressing issues such as:
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.
CitiesAlive delegates will partake in technical sessions directed towards design, research and policy communities and focus on the latest scientific research, design, products, and policies all of which are critical to meeting the challenge of promoting healthy and resilient people and places in New York City. Delegates can tour leading edge projects, research facilities and see some unique sites such as the High Line, Javits Center and Brooklyn Grange. Some tour locations are not available for view for the general public.
We expect a sell-out crowd for CitiesAlive NYC in 2015.
