What is CitiesAlive?

CitiesAlive® is North America's leading forum to discuss benefits and strategies of green roof and wall design, installation, and maintenance. This interdisciplinary conference features presentations on research, design, and policy. Ever year this conference focuses on a specific sustainability topic that can be addressed with green roofs and walls. This event also serves as host to the annual Green Roof and Wall Awards of Excellence program, celebrating outstanding green roof and wall design projects, ground-breaking research, influential sustainability advocates, and supportive organizations.

CitiesAlive Conference Recordings

As in past years, the 2016 CitiesAlive presentations were recorded and made available (slides synced with audio recordings of sessions) along with technical papers, as well as the opening and morning plenary sessions. New this year, the recordings can be purchased by programming track (design, research, policy, or panel discussion) or in its entirety. All conference recordings are eligible for GRP CEUs.
