WaterBear - The Rooftop Revolution
Whether it’s for our own sanity or to mitigate climate change, the need for green spaces in our cities has never been more pressing. As global populations rise and the trend towards urbanisation increases, space is at a premium. But just above our heads there’s an abundance of free space - rooftops. In many places, like the Netherlands, they’re often flat – making them the ideal locations for a natural climate-meets-tech solution. Green “Living” roofs means cooler cities. They’re also a perfect spot to install solar panels and wind turbines, helping cool the planet.
