Workshop - "The value of green roofs and green walls"

June 03, 2022

This workshop took place at Instituto Superior Técnico and aimed to showcase part of the work done during the Genesis Project.

The first two presentations were dedicated to nature-based solutions and how to value them in urban areas. After the audience was presented with three different but complementary projects: the retrofitting of a green roof in a public building, the construction of a new intensive roof in a private habitational building and the retrofit of intensive and extensive greens roofs and a green wall in a single private house. In the end, there was a presentation and discussion of the GreenCalc Tool, a small debate when people from the audience could ask questions and the results of a survey done at the beginning of the workshop were discussed.

The feedback was very positive, with nearly 30 attendants in the room and more than 80 viewers via Zoom.
