The World Green Infrastructure Network (WGIN) was established in 2007. The Network acts as a global informational clearing house for national green roof associations and other stakeholders such as public authorities, educational institutes and the green roof industry. The WGIN collects and disseminates knowledge, information and data concerning green roofs and green walls. The Network is represented in 30 countries worldwide. In these countries the WGIN representatives may be green roof associations or green roof industry corporate members.
As part of the WGIN, the Urbanscape Green Solution team actively contributes with its knowledge and experience to help Green Urban Infrastructure become an integral part of urban environment. Importantly, we also support EU institutions by presenting performance data and the benefits that green roofs, green walls and other Green Urban Infrastructure solutions can offer to cities.
Have a look at the latest WGIN’s position paper “Urban Green Infrastructure: Green roofs – an effective solution to tackle urban flooding and the pollution of waterways” submitted to DG Environment at the European Commision during public consultation ‘Evaluation of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (91/271/EEC)’.
