From World Green Roof Day to Everyday
 with Living Green Architecture

According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the current unprecedented floods in Brazil, drought in the Amazon, deluges and heatwaves across Africa, and extreme heat across Asia are causing severe damage to health and livelihoods. In the U.S., summer temperatures are expected to be among the highest experienced yet. Amidst increased extreme weather patterns and climate denial, we have the responsibility to ourselves and future generations to promote clean, renewable energy and living green architecture not only for our local health, economy, and the environment but for the long-term prosperity of the Earth, our only home.

Our European colleagues invite you to the
Nature Based Solutions Summit: Urban Edition on May 23-24 in Porto, Portugal and Rethink Rooftops (Rotterdamse Dakendagen - Rotterdam Rooftop Days) 2024 on May 23-26 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

This year's theme is Energy on Roofs - light, wind, heat, water, physical, mechanical, sound, gravitational, and electrical.
