Greener Buildings, From the Top Down
Pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, heat island effect, runoff poor air quality, poor health: these are some of the major environmental and health problems that typically plague urban centers and cities, problems that both result from and contribute to climate change. Denver was named one of the top three cities in North America to be impacted by the urban heat island in 2014 according to Climate Central.
There is no one solution, but there are high-impact measures we can take to mitigate the problem: like making more green roofs!
Green roofs are far more than rooftop gardens. When done right, they can provide a number of environmental, social and health benefits.
Join us July 30, 2015 to hear from panelists Karla Dakin, Jennifer Bousselot, Dr. Angela Loder, Andy Creath and Mark Fusco who will share their expertise on the importance of green roofs, address current issues questions on policy, incentives, installation and maintenance, and answer key questions such as, "How do green roofs fit into green buildings?", "Do green roofs influence health?", "What about water?", and "What are some current opportunities and barriers to green roof installation in Denver?" The session will encourage questions and discussion from the audience and together we will work together to create more green roofs in pursuit of a more beautiful, healthy, and sustainable Colorado.
