Development of the urban environment has led to the removal of volumetric green, triggering significant stormwater and pollution issues, prompting the disappearance of wildlife communities and eliminating the lifestyle benefits commonly associated with agriculture. Kevin Songer shares his vision and advances with sustainable, nature-irrigated green roof systems, explaining their critical importance to the future of our communities.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
