LI CPD Conference: Inclusive Environments
15 Jun 2021
Day 2. 5 Climate Equity and Inclusivity
As the climate changes, so must our practices and approaches to landscape architecture shift to being more equitable and inclusive for all. While impacts of climate change permeate into our everyday lives, landscape architects can create more meaningful ways to connect, design and include the people that will be affected the most. Through creative approaches to community engagement, democratic design of the public realm, and development of tools and resources, more people can effectively be included in a more just climate conversation. This session will explore the ways to engage with communities to build collective knowledge and plan together. You will gain insights on strategies for designing Democratic Public Spaces that are equitable and inclusive to all and learn about creating free and accessible mission driven tools and resources.
