Green Walls Exchange (recorded webinar) image #1


Webinar via webex

LiFE Framework: Biodiversity

A short talk on the environmental values of urban green walls focusing on the animal biodiversity, air quality (PM pollution), building insulation (thermal, noise and light) and human well-being. This was a live webinar which took place on the 15 November 2012.

We have recorded this webinar for you and made the presentation and a number of other resources available to you, which you will find below. The presentation lasted for 25 minutes and was followed by 5 minutes of questions.

 It was presented by Caroline Chiquet from the Institute for Environment Sustainability and Regeneration at Staffordshire University. It is based on a PhD project currently running at the University. The data from the project comes from different types of green walls (self-climbing walls and different commercial living walls systems) based on different sites in UK (Staffordshire University campus, Staffordshire, Birmingham, London, etc).

A key part of the Sustainability Exchange is encouraging dialogue and sharing of ideas and approaches through resources and other online methods. This webinar is part of our range of ‘exchanges’ which are short, free lunchtime webinars on a variety of interesting topics, hosted by the Sustainability Exchange.
