Which green roofs fit into the 21st century and which new fields of work and knowledge result for those involved in construction? Experts from the municipal, scientific and technical sectors will be addressing this question at the Green Roof Forum Frankfurt. Against the background of the current climate discussions, green roofs continue to be the focus of attention. Whether it is rainwater retention, summer heat insulation or protecting roof waterproofing against extreme temperatures and hail damage, many large cities give green roofs a high priority in their climate change adaptation plans.
