About

Connecting the Planet + Living Architecture

The Mission of the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summits is to inform, share, and create a global social media experience online for learning and networking via the power of the Internet

Held biennially since 2011, the Greenroofs.com Virtual Summits are a community destination that allow you to connect with everyone and experience greenroofs & walls and green living infrastructure online.  The 2017 VS videos were available to registrants on demand though December 31, 2017.

In addition to increasing awareness of our living architecture market and industry, the Virtual Summits are an interactive platform for idea interchange through a combination of environmentally forward videos from keynote speakers, expert panel sessions, individual & collaborative, and streaming Q & As on Facebook Live.
