Philadel­phia, the City of Broth­er­ly Love, opens its arms to CitiesAlive 2011 – the only con­fer­ence in North Amer­i­ca devot­ed to the green roof and wall indus­try. This year, CitiesAlive exam­ines how green roofs and walls can con­tribute to Philadelphia’s mul­ti-bil­lion dol­lar plans to uti­lize green infra­struc­ture to revi­tal­ize its urban waters.

Green roofs and walls are key com­po­nents in restor­ing vital water resources in the urban envi­ron­ment, reduc­ing the urban heat island and improv­ing the health and well being of com­mu­ni­ties. CitiesAlive rep­re­sents a trans­for­ma­tion to green­er, health­i­er cities as well as new busi­ness oppor­tu­ni­ties in an indus­try that grew almost 30% last year.
