Last Thursday the Environmental Finance Center at Syracuse University and the State University of New York College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry hosted the 2011 Central New York Green Infrastructure Symposium. The best and the brightest professionals, researchers, and government officials poured into the symposium to share ideas and learn about green infrastructure applications and regional workforce development.
Joining the discussion was our fearless leader Jorg Breuning. As a guest lecturer Jorg presented a wealth of knowledge covering common mistakes to avoid with green roof design, construction and maintenance. He also busted a few myths about green roofs as well. A download of this presentation can be found on our Resources page under Modern Green Roof Technology.
Over all it was a very informative and productive symposium. It was also a real treat being able to see old friend Charlie Miller who gave a wonderful opening keynote presentation.
