The 10th annual green roof and wall conference will take place in Chicago on October 17th to 20th at the historic Congress Plaza hotel. Chicago was the site of the first CitiesAlive conference in 2003 and has been North America’s green roof leader for the past decade. Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) invites you to the place where it all began, to celebrate our shared legacy and to continue build a higher quality of life in the built environment. Join GRHC and the City of Chicago as they celebrate a decade of living architecture at the 10th Anniversary of CitiesAlive. A living example of legacy urban planning.
