Climate change and the energy transition have made many questions of the dense city as nature urgently explosive. What are the solutions? How do we broadly implement already existing solution? How do we reach investors, citizens, politicians? A new series of online-lectures gives detailed answers. Organizers: Foundation Biotope City and 2 Insitututes of the University for Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna: Institute of Landscape Planing (ILAP) and Institute of Soil Bioengineering and Landscape Construction (IBLB).

In view of the many urgent practical questions regarding the adaptation of cities to climate change and the energy transition, we have designed an online lecture series. This lecture series is a cooperation between the Biotope City Foundation, the Institute of Landscape Planning (ILAP) and the Institute of Engineering Biology and Landscaping (IBLB) of the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU).
An in-depth presentation with broad discussion seems important to us, since there are already many not sufficiently known solution strategies and successful implementations for the most diverse situations, objectives and interests of the professionally involved and the citizens.

Every 3-4 weeks, one of these urgent questions is dealt with by an expert in an approx. 30-minute lecture and then discussed in detail by all those present for a maximum of 1 hour. The lectures will take place on a Tuesday at 17.00 and will last until 18.30 at the most.
If you are interested, please send an email to – you will then receive the link to participate beforehand. Registration is not necessary, you just have to join the meeting with the link.

The first lecture will take place on 20.9.2022, 17.00 o’clock and is dedicated to a highly topical subject:
Combination of Photovoltaics and Green. Highly topical because the current demand for photovoltaics threatens to displace green roofs in many cases. It is still not widely known that the combination of photovoltaics and greenery is a win-win situation.
Dr. Irene Zluwa has done a detailed study of international empirical results on this and will present her findings for us.

Subsequent presentations will deal with the following topics:
Glass facades + greening
Activation of citizens for greening incl. its maintenance
Climate resilience through building greening – how and with which result
Climate change and gender aspects
