12 participants from all over the world attended the five-day long pilot course that was held the 14th- 18th of June at Augustenborg’s Botanical Roof Garden in Malmö, Sweden. The course content were a mix of theory on biodiverse and biosolar roofs and practical elements and workshops alongside an excursion to the biodiverse green roofscape of Malmö and Copenhagen. Two green roof sites were installed at the Roof garden. For one of these areas, the students mixed their own substrate consisting of pumice, coarse sand and crushed bricks. The students also got to enhance a sedum roof’s ecological value, conduct risk assessments and design their own Biosolar roofs.
A well appreciated pilot course!
