Re-naturing urban areas and accomplishing benefits for both nature, people and the economy.

The Scandinavian Green Infrastructure Association (SGIA) is a non-profit organisation with members from academia, municipal departments, green roof entrepreneurs, architects, developers and other organisations with an interest in green roofs and urban green infrastructure.

Our vision is a Scandinavia where buildings and nature are combined – where green roofs and walls create living, livable and resilient cities.

SGIA build the bridge between Scandinavian actors of green infrastructure by creating a platform for sharing knowledge, gaining inspiration and creating collaboration between actors dedicated to the development of resilient green infrastructure. SGIA work actively to guide the development of Scandinavian cities towards liveable cities through the process of re-naturing urban areas and in this way accomplishing benefits for both nature, people and the economy.
