– Greening our buildings for the sustainable development of the urban environment and communities

 - 

Urban development is putting increasing pressure on the viability of natural environments which directly compromises the quality of living environments. Issues such as urban heat island effect, storm water management, and the loss of biodiversity and ecosystemic services are evidence of this. However, the deployment of strategies such as those related to the greening of buildings help mitigate the negative effects caused by these problems. The purpose of this conference is to demonstrate how greening the building is one of the sustainable solutions that address the major environmental and socio-economic challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s communities. It is therefore in a spirit of openness to collaboration that two passionate phytotechnology specialists unite to carry out an integral presentation combining the global study of the fallout and the practical application of these structuring means.
