Event Description

Living Air Conditioning & Carbon Sponges:

Vertical Forests, Meadow Roofs, and other Plant-based Systems to Beat the Heat 

Climate scientists predict that within 30 years, Philadelphia could spend as many as74 days a year above 90ºF, almost 7 more weeks than we experience now.

We can remove CO2 from the atmosphere with plant-based building materials that store carbon and cool our city with biophilic urbanist solutions, using the only truly "green" air conditioning available: trees and plants. As always, bioPhilly is bringing together a diverse group of experts from the fields of biophilic design, urban ecology & forestry, public health & policy, and community engagement & construction to explore Urban Heat Islands (UHIs) and their inequitable impacts.
