BLUE-GREEN ROOF EXPERT ROOS
Who am I?
My name is Roos Nieuwesteeg and I work at Rooftop Revolution. One of the partners of the RESILIO project and responsible for clear communication and participation with local residents. Rooftop Revolution’s mission is to to realize as many green roofs as possible. We do this for the city and preferably together with ambitious residents. That is why I would like to involve you in the RESILIO project!
What do I do as a blue-green roof expert for RESILIO?
Blue-green RESILIO roofs will be built in 5 neighborhoods in Amsterdam. My goal is to involve all residents of these neighborhoods as much as possible in the development of the project. Which means; to tell what the project entails, show what will be on the roofs (from the different layers of the construction to the various types of vegetation), and explain why blue-green roofs are good for you and the environment. I will regularly visit the neighborhoods (taking into consideration the Covid-19 measurements) to talk with people about the execution of the blue-green roof, greening, but also about developments in the neighborhood.
