ROEF is an initiative of
With this intimate festival ROEF wants to show the possibilities of the roofscape above the city. The program during the festival appeals to the imagination and creates a new perspective. ROEF wants to show everybody that the undeveloped roofscape has a sky high potential. Currently only 2% of the rooftops in Amsterdam are used and just 1% of the flat rooftops is green. Though green roofs increase the biodiversity, improve the air quality, they insulate, are sound absorbing and help to absorb heavy rainfall. Because the ground floor is getting more crowded everyday, a roofgarden is also the perfect place to relax. ROEF wants to build bridges between the green roofs, so we can walk from roof to roof without even touching the streets. We invite everyone to create the largest rooftop paradise of The Netherlands together!
