SGRA co-arranged Scandinavian seminar

A two day Scandinavian seminar, “Green Building – Building Green in Cities” was arranged in Helsinki on August 25th – 26th, 2016. SGRA was one of the organizers of the seminar illuminating integrated aspects of sustainable green building practices and solutions. Presentations from experts from different fields raised lively discussions during the seminar days, over dinner and excursions. Key-note speakers Gary Grant and Thomas Speck gave thought provoking talks about ecosystem services in cities and how learning from nature can inspire technical innovation. Several Scandinavian cases were presented, including the Scandinavian green roof award-winner Egedal City Hall and Health Care Center.
