For one day only, we brought together some of the most successful rooftop garden projects from around the world, to share their stories of struggles and successes. We curated a group of changemakers with hands-on knowledge and good stories to tell, that can inspire property developers, architects, urbanists, landscape architects, investors, environmentalists and gardeners, to take the leap and ensure that all those green visions that we all share, can become reality.
We are grateful to the County Governor / Fylkesmannen in Oslo & Viken for their contributions to the event, the Royal Dutch Embassy in Oslo for supporting our Dutch guests, and Bykuben for facilitating the filming of the event. The event was an official Green Capital event.
