Green roofs are a particular type of green infrastructure which makes use of wasted space on top of buildings and carparks, areas previously thought to be of no real economic value!

Using the living lab concept, researchers at Macquarie University have partnered together with local stakeholders and industry to transform the coal loader site into a green roof with high social capital and added environmental benefits. It will be an opportunity for increasing urban harvest, as well as a showcase of energy efficient site management and various habitat creation techniques.
