Optigrün takes part in the World Green Roof Day 2020
On Saturday, 6 June 2020, the green roof community around the world will celebrate World Green Roof Day 2020. This day is meant to be a celebration of green roofs all over the world and the benefits they bring to people and nature. Optigrün international AG and Optigreen Ltd. in the United Kingdom are excited to support and participate in WGRD 2020.
Members of the construction, roofing and landscape industries worldwide are being encouraged to participate in this inaugral day by sharing images and videos of green roof projects on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #WGRD and #WGRD2020. The campaign has been initiated by Optigreen partner Chris Bridgman of Bridgman & Bridgman LLP and Dusty Gedge, president of the European Federation of Green Roof Associations (EFB) and founder of livingroofs.org.
The EFB was founded in 1997 and has its office in Vienna. The Optigrün group is represented in EFB through its memberships in several national green roofs associations, among them the German Bundesverband GebäudeGrün e.V. (BuGG), the Austrian Verband für Bauwerksbegrünung (VfB), UK’s Green Roof Organisation (GRO), the French Association des Toitures et Façades Végétales (ADIVET), the Dutch Vereniging Bouwwerk Begroeners (VBB) and the Polish Polskie Stowarzyszenie "Dachy Zielone" (PSDZ).
