Mobilane supports the International Conference on Living Walls and Ecosystem Services25 June 2015
Mobilane is excited to be attending the International Conference on Living Walls and Ecosystem Services, hosted by The University of Greenwich at the Green Roofs and Living Walls Centre 6-8 July 2015
The three day event will offer delegates a range of international speakers and industry-lead workshops, as well as walking tours of London living walls conducted before and after the conference, as well as a networking reception and an exhibition of living wall systems.
Workshops at the conference will focus on; system installation and maintenance; plant selection; valuation of ecosystem services; and living walls for vertical farming.
“This is a very exciting event,” says Paul Garlick, National Business Manager at Mobilane UK. “The market for living walls and green roofs is becoming well established in the UK and across many other territories, but there is still a lot of work to be done in underlining and promoting the value of living systems in the urban environment.
“For many people they are an aesthetically pleasing novelty, however, the full benefits are not always understood. So events like this are crucial for not only explaining the benefits in detail, but also for explaining the practical considerations for anyone thinking of embarking on a living system installation.
“The International Conference on Living Walls and Ecosystem Services is attracting the leading experts in the field and is a must-attend event for those who work in the industry, as well as those with an interest in living walls and green roofs. It is a rare opportunity for the living systems community to come together and focus on the industry and to network.”
The International Conference on Living Walls and Ecosystem Services takes place Monday 6th July – Wednesday 8th July at 10 Stockwell Street, SE10 9BD, the brand new library and academic building of the University of Greenwich, which is located within the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site.
