Eco Roof for Green Future

Summary of your idea

Dhaka City in Bangladesh is largely our common community. Situation of this mega city is getting worst day by day owing to severe pollution in numerous forms, extensive urbanization and industrialization. High-rise buildings and sky scrapers are many in numbers. We are think of targeting roofs of a communitys apartments, buildings, housings or even the offices to be filled by gardens. The surrounding air of that building will be fresh, temperature will be lower, atmosphere will remain cool, birds-butterflies will appear (ecology & eco-system rotation), climate change will be controlled, air pollution will be reduced and aesthetic needs will be fulfilled in consumer level.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Reducing carbon-di-oxide & reduction of a number of polluting air particles and compounds Reducing urban temperatures & energy conservation Acting as a sound insulation barrier (Green roof with 12 cm substrate layer can reduce sound by 40dB) Using urban waste/ recycled materials for roof garden thus helping waste disposal Eating healthy & Living green with nature

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The following points shall be maintained to reach our goal- 1. Convincing owner of the buildings to render their roof 2. Sharing the profit of roof gardens with the owners of buildings 3. Profit can be made by selling fruits and vegetables grown on roof gardens 4. Making the owners aware of the environmental impact of gardens on them and society as well 5. Directions will be provided by garden experts under our supervision. It will be year after year, generation after generation practice. Continuance of this practice shall make Dhaka city eco-friendly after 5 years like China, Japan, South Korea, USA.
