  • Cities Alive: Annual Green Roof & Wall Conference - Seattle
    Time: All Day
    Date: September 18, 2017
    Date: September 18, 2017
    Time: 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
    Location: Sheraton Seattle Hotel, 1400 6th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
    Within the western region of North America lies Cascadia. Although the boundaries of the region differ depending on ecological, political, economic or cultural lines - it's undeniable that Cascadia is expansive. The climate of Cascadia calls for adaptation of building materials, plants, media, and maintenance models. After years on the east coast, CitiesAlive 2017 is highlighting the necessity of green roofs and walls alongside the region's unique characteristics.

    For the first time, Seattle will host CitiesAlive®: 15th Annual Green Roof and Wall Conference. This year's conference will celebrate the region featuring content specific to the Pacific Northwest.

    At CitiesAlive we will explore the science behind green roof and wall performance, technology, and design through the lens of the different climates and cities within Cascadia. Discover new products and services at the CitiesAlive® trade show, tour some of Seattle's best green infrastructure projects, and enhance your professional practice with continuing education and networking events.
