Conference Highlights


Theme - "Symbiosis: INTENSE Nature Within Cities"

The breadth and depth of the skyrise greenery movement have grown over time across cities. Elevated building platforms, gaps, corners, roofs and even underground spaces have become new planes for land-scarce cities like Singapore. With this evolving symbiotic relationship between cities and nature, a diversity of landscape typologies has emerged to meet a range of community objectives.

The fourth edition of the International Skyrise Greenery Conference (ISGC) continues to deepen the conversation of skyrise greenery. It will focus on the topics of resilience, new levels of greening and integrating social needs into urban infrastructure. The conference also offers an open platform to draw lessons from the challenges nature presents – shaping intents, outcomes and even the bottom line of greening projects. Scheduled for 9 & 10 November at the Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre, ISGC 2017 is the key skyrise greenery conference that you do not want to miss!

Delegate Testimonial:

"GreenUrbanScape Asia Congress was an enriching experience. I attended the session on bringing biodiversity back to the cities, and found it very interesting to see the amount of green space that’s been brought back to Singapore in the last 50 years through collective initiatives. It’s amazing to see the absolute balance between urban and green space in Singapore. Another session was on Arboriculture where topics such as litigation were covered which every arboriculture consultant should know about to maintain a true professional standing."

Mr Wayne Van Balen, President, Australian Institute of Horticulture Inc.
