Green Roof Policy & Planning Study Tour

Each year Scandinavian Green Roof Association & Institute organizes an international study trip.

2016 year’s study trip went to Switzerland in collaboration with the Zurich University of Applied Science and Scandorama.

A group of 13 participants visited a total of 7 different green roofs and walls in Basel and Zurich. The group consisted of both enthusiasts and professionals who sought more knowledge and inspiration for future projects.

Some of the main objectives was the MFO park, Wollishofen, Basel Trade Fair Centre and Stucki. Nathalie Baumann was our guide during the trip. With her expertise, she showed the group the various sights with enthusiasm and commitment.

The group were very inspired by Switzerland with its well-developed green solutions!

In summer 2019, we are planning our next field trip. Get updated about date and destination!
