It is an honour for me to announce:

New strategy for the first European green roof study tours.

postcard01-copy1 September, 2009 

The essential nature of the study tour will remain intact, providing access to countless and diverse projects, meetings with local experts, and extensive information and technology transfer facilitated by knowledgeable, multi-lingual guides.Given the expertise and professional network which define the study tour, group interests can be tailored with flexibility.

An original Stuttgarter, Jörg Breuning worked in the German green roof industry from apprenticeship through independent business for +29 years. He says, “I look forward to sharing the experiences and lessons learned from these projects with participants.”  Since 2003, Breuning has found great success with his U.S.-based Green Roof Service LLC.

Christine Thüring, who is Swiss-Canadian, enjoys combining her organizational efficacy and language skills with her 8 years’ green roof expertise. Deeply impressed by the positive learning impact experienced by participants, Thüring vowed to offer this service in the future. As intended, “Green Roof Safari fosters the spirit for sharing and community.”

Steven Peck, Founder and President of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities, the North American green roof industry association, comments that “tours are an excellent, perhaps the best, way to network and learn firsthand about green roof designs and programs in other countries.”
