“Development of Different Types of Green Roofs & Green Walls for Improved Urban Biodiversity and Green Clime Adaptation in Cold Climates” by Dr. Tobias Emilsson

Dr. Tobias Emilsson, Marie-Curie Senior research fellow at ZinCo GmbH and researcher at the Landscape Management, Design and Construction Department of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Malmö, Sweden will give an overview of his current research.

This presentation will discuss how green roofs and green walls can be designed for improving biodiversity and urban climate. It will showcase a number of different research projects that are run in cooperation with the City of Malmö and the Scandinavian Green Roof Institute. The main part of the research projects are looking at different variables related to substrate and plant selection.
