LAUNCH OF “LifeMedGreenRoof” PROJECT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MALTA PROMOTING THE USE OF GREEN ROOFS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION

On 29 November 2013, the “LifeMedGreenRoof” project was launched at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta in the presence of the Maltese Minister for Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Leo Brincat, and the Italian Ambassador Giovanni Umberto De Vito.

The aim of the project is to prove that green roof technology is safe, economically efficient and can contribute to energy conservation and to mitigating localised flooding.

A circa 750m² green roof will be constructed over the Faculty for Built Environment at the University of Malta and another 250m² green roof over the Agricultural Centre of the Minoprio Foundation in Italy (province of Como). This will demonstrate that green roofs are an important tool in mitigating problems related to urban environment, promoting biodiversity and dealing with climate change.

The project will be running over a four-year period and is co-financed by the European Union. The Faculty for Built Environment at the University of Malta is leading the project and is working in close collaboration with the “Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority – MCCAA”, the Minoprio Foundation and the MAC – Minoprio Analisi e Certificazioni s.r.l.
