EdiCitNet Global Lunch Talk #2: Making Cities Edible With Building-Integrated Agriculture
March 9, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Building-integrated urban agriculture – like rooftop farms and edible green facades – offer cities a range of ecological, socio-cultural as well as economic benefits. But what needs to be done to get the city on board? In this 2nd webinar the EdiCitNet project will be exploring legislative and political barriers , but also chances and opportunities. Looking at Germany – and internationally – what can cities and individuals do to support the spread of building-integrated agriculture?
In this webinar we hear from green building experts Rebecca Gohlke and Felix Mollenhauer from Bundesverband GebäudeGrün e.V. (German Association of Building Greening).
Bundesverband GebäudeGrün e. V. (BuGG) operates both as a professional organisation and an advocacy group for companies, communities, universities, organisations and all parties interested in building greening. BuGG deals with all aspects of building greening, i.e. green roofs, green walls, interior greening and further building structures. Roof gardens, roof farms and edible green walls are part of nature-based ECS that offer ecological, socio-cultural as well as economic benefits.
