SFG Anniversary Conference “Green City of the Future” @ Congress Hotel Seepark
Jun 22 all-day

SFG Anniversary Conference “Green City of the Future”

SFG-Jubiläumstagung“Grüne Stadt der Zukunft“

On June 22, 2022, the swiss association of greening building (SFG) will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a day-long event on current issues in greening buildings.

Am 22. Juni 2022 feiert die SFG ihr 25-jähri-ges Jubiläum mit einem ganztägigen Anlass zu aktuellen Themen der Gebäudebegrünung.

Helfen Sie mit, die Zukunft zu gestalten -gemeinsam planen, debattieren, diskutieren wir, räumen mit gängigen Mythen auf, zeigen das Stadtbild von Morgen und wie die Klimaresilienz und das menschliche Wohlbefinden verbessert werden können.

Begrünte Gebäude sind von grosser Bedeutung und erfreuen sich einer zunehmenden Beliebtheit. Ihre Ökosystemleistungen wie Verdunstungskühlung, Verschattung und Retention haben eine regulierende Wirkung während Hitzeperioden oder bei Starkniederschlägen. Die Gebäudebegrünung hilft uns, aktuelle und zukünftige Herausforderungen wie Biodiversität und Wärmeinseln anzugehen, die Lebensqualität zu verbessern und die grüne Stadt der Zukunft aktiv zu gestalten.

Doch wie passt diese Vision in unsere wachsenden Städte und zur angestrebten Energiewende? Wie kann die Gebäudebegrünung in die Stadt- und Raumplanung integriert werden? Welche Rolle spielen die verschiedenen Akteur:innen wie Bund und Kantone, städtische Verwaltungen, Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft mit den unterschiedlichen Interessen und Motiven? Wie schaffen wir es gemeinsam eine klimaresiliente, enkeltaugliche und grüne Stadt der Zukunft zu schaffen?

Diskutieren Sie mit! Am 22. Juni 2022 machen wir uns gemeinsam auf den Weg.

Unser Schicksal hängt nicht von den Sternen ab,sondern von unserem Handeln.
William Shakespeare
