The primary objectives of this years conference are to support the green roof and wall industries in Australia and New Zealand:
  • Focus on driving green roof and wall implementation
  • Supporting different sectors and disciplines to share an appreciation of their benefits and application for our climate
  • Demonstrating the technological and environmental benefits, sharing and disseminating good practice and promoting the implementation of green roofs and walls into our cities'
