Event description

Description

Green walls not only look good, but play a growing role in greening the cities of our future.

What are the additional functions of plants in our living spaces? What does the research say about the measured benefits? How can you use green infrastructure to make our cities more liveable?

This event shares the findings of recent research by Edge Environment funded by Hort Innovation, into understanding the benefits of plants, measuring their value and rewarding the good in green infrastructure through built environment rating tools. Come and share the experiences of a diverse panel of speakers on greening buildings and infrastructure, and how to capture the benefits of plants in projects and achieve available credit points from ISCA and GBCA.


2x GBCA CPD Sustainable Development points are available by attendance at this event.
