Day 1. 2 Landscape Architecture: Tackling the Climate Crisis
Join the LI as it launches its new Climate Change and Landscape policy paper.
This is an update of its landmark 2008 report, 12 years on, with ten new case studies and are-analysis of how the sector can make the biggest difference. LI President Jane Findlay will host a panel to launch the report, and talk through the factors that make our sector so uniquely placed to tackle the climate crisis head-on, as well as the areas where we need to do more.

Ulrik Lassen, Ramboll
Mr. Lassen has during the last decade been working with the interrelationship between climate adaptation and urban development. His work as an civil engineer has been heavily influenced by an interdiciplinary aproach where not only engineers dictates the solutions, but instead are developed
together with architects, landscape architects, social sciences etc. Mr. Lassen has in-depth knowledge of holistic urban- and wastewater planning together with design and implementation of solutions within sustainable cities and climate adaptation planning.
