Green Roof Policy Development Workshop - Calgary March 6th & Edmonton March 7th, 2007

Find out what leading jurisdictions are doing to turn wasted rooftops into cleaner air and water!

This half-day workshop will examine what kind of incentives currently exist in other jurisdictions, how the incentives are tied to performance standards and how policy makers can assess what types of incentive programs will work best in their areas. It will also provide a framework for planners and governmental agencies to gain an understanding of the multi-faceted impacts of green roofs and areas of consideration for implementing green roof policy. Tuition is $95 or $45 for NGO's and students.
