On the 16th and 23rd of April 2020 consultation workshops were organised for 8 Polish pilot cities working on their green roof strategies. The on-line events gave an opportunity to discuss in detail the overall structure and contents of the strategies proposed by Izabela Małachowska-Coqui, expert in the project, and then to think together what local support schemes could be implemented in different cities to promote green roofs and what should be their boundary conditions. Cities’ representatives also shared their reflections on the most important local challenges connected with climate change, as well as the role that the green roofs can play in tackling those challenges and ensuring better citizens’ comfort. Moreover, they exchange experiences from the works on strategies conducted so far.
