Develop a scalable concept that makes it attractive for owners of buildings to make their roofs greener and more sustainable and to use them more intensively.
Space for the City
The Hague is a densely populated city. The Space for the City Agenda (2016) establishes big ambitions with regard to the combination of densification, sustainability and greening. It is not always easy to reconcile greening with densification. Municipal parks and gardens are important for the quality of life, a condition for the ability to densify, but they take up a lot of space. The city has an extensive roof landscape which is hardly used. Roofs are used in limited ways for energy generation (solar panels), but greening and more intensive use has made little progress, although green roofs offer enormous benefits for both building owners and the city as a whole:
Use that roof
The challenge: Develop a scalable concept that makes it attractive for owners of buildings to make their roofs greener and more sustainable and to use them more intensively.
Objective: more efficient and intensive use of the roofs in The Hague so that we are better able to combine densification with sustainability and greening. It is difficult for both large and small building owners to oversee all the benefits. Although many are sympathetic to the principles, there are all kinds of obstacles which prevent them from not taking action.
