Subject: Call for papers and notice of the International Conference on Green Walls

Meeting the Challenge of a sustainable urban future:
the contribution of green walls International Green Wall Conference
4-5th September 2014

Call for papers and notice of the International Conference on Green Walls ‘Meeting the Challenge of a sustainable urban future: the contribution of green walls’ to be held at Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent, UK.

Green walls are an important component of Green Infrastructure – possibly the only cost effective approach to coping with some of the immense challenges currently facing urban areas: climate change (coping with extreme events e.g. heat-waves, flooding), pollution (including health impacts), lack of wildlife habitat, social problems (including mental health) resulting from high-density urban living. The green wall sector is exceptionally dynamic with new product developments and insights constantly emerging. For this reason we have convened this meeting to bring together researchers, manufacturers, installers, planners, architects, consultants, and developers to exchange information and learn of new developments in this exciting technology.
