Visit London to the Green LImit

Visit London to the Green Limit on September 20 and 21

On 20 and 21 September EILO organizes an excursion you do not want to miss. We will visit some fantastic green projects in London. The Skygarden in the Walkie Talkie building and The Crossrail Garden in Canary Wharf are definive parts of the programme, but there is much more to come. The excursion starts on Thursday afternoon with keynote speaker Oliver Heath. If anyone knows about Biophilic design and how we are wired for nature, it is Oliver. His speach will be followed by a presentation of SIGN about how to promote Green in the office space and Sander Kroll who will officially launch his Plants Xtra Large book. The afternoon ends, as usual, with some Pecha Kucha presentations from our suppliers, which will be followed by drinks and dinner. On Friday we will have a full day packed with visits to inspiring places, and of course finish the day with a lovely dinner too.

We are so sorry, but registration for this excursion is closed.
