Vegetation is returning to our cities. The trend started with rooftop planters on City banks in the 2000s, before spreading to the occasional green wall on a luxury hotel. Now, entire urban blocks are being transformed with ever-more ambitious plant projects.
The World Green Infrastructure Congress has been an international event since 2008 in Toronto. The congress disseminates and advocates for green infrastructure inclusion for the urban environment as an adaptation to climate variability.
Previous congresses have been held in France; Germany; India; Australia; Japan; China; Colombia and Canada.
In 2024 the WGIC will be held in NZ / Indo Pacific region to promote green infrastructure.
