Strona ONG

Website of the Garden over the head project, which aimed at promoting and transferring Swiss know-how on improving buildings’ energy efficiency by equipping them with green roofs and living walls. Since such solutions improve buildings’ thermal insulation, it is worth to include them in local climate & energy plans.
