The 27th United Nations Climate Change conference (COP27) with representatives of more than 190 nations is being held from 6 November until 18 November 2022 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

The countries are struggling for a concrete realisation of the pledged climate protection goals, above all the limitation of the global temperature rise to 1.5°C. Not only representatives of the countries do attend, also climate protection organisations and journalists are there. About 30.000 people are expected to attend the two-week conference.

Green roof and PV tubes

The combination of green roofs with tubular photovoltaic modules was awarded the GaLaBau Innovation Medal 2022. This innovative combination allows for lightweight constructions ranging from extensive green roofs to roof gardens.

Also existing green roofs which cannot be equipped with the traditional photovoltaic panels for structural reasons, may be retrofitted with this solution.

Valletta Design Cluster, Malta

950 trees, shrubs, ground cover plants, climbing plants, flowers and grasses across a roof area of 495 m² on a 400-year-old building – the design of the roof garden on the Valletta Design Cluster is as rich in detail and artistic as the entire infrastructure project in Valletta, Malta’s city of culture. The Design Cluster is the new heart of the artistic and cultural scene in Malta and the inspired roof garden is open to the public as a community space.

Where will the journey take us?

People need sound ecosystems to live in. The catastrophic flooding that occurred in Germany in the summer of 2021 is one of the most painful experiences that will accelerate a change in attitude among policy makers and within society.  And, it is not before time. Decisive measures aimed at adapting to climate change, which involve the creation of a liveable green and blue infrastructure, are long overdue - even though the technical ways and means are here already.

Urban Farming in Toronto

“Fresh ingredients taste better” is the guiding principle of the farm to table movement and nothing could be more natural than using your own roof for growing herbs, vegetables or even hops. The Avling Kitchen and Brewery in Toronto has proven this with their 400 m² roof garden that supplies all kinds of ingredients for their own brewery and restaurant.
