Explore the many links between the roofs and walls of our cities and the critical social, environmental, and economic necessities of urban life. It’s an exciting time in horticulture as designers, city planners, and green roof industry professionals think creatively about how living architecture can improve the resilience of our communities.
“San Francisco continues to evolve as a prime example of an increasingly sustainable city with green roofs and walls as essential contributory elements,” said John Rahaim, Director, San Francisco Planning Department. “CitiesAlive will serve to highlight San Francisco’s past and future innovative green efforts, and provide the City an opportunity to learn best practices as we further refine and advance our sustainability policies and practices. We look forward to gathering and collaborating with experts from across the globe towards those goals.”
