Boston Society of Landscape Architects
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE + CLIMATE ACTION
in New England; A Virtual Summit
May 5 from 11:00AM to 2:00PM
Join us for the second annual virtual, regional summit to discuss climate action through landscape architecture & design in New England. (Held this year in conjunction with Boston Design Week!)
Climate change is here. Our outdoor spaces, from backyards to schoolyards, parks to forests to watersheds, have vital roles to play in mitigation and adaptation.
As a professional community of designers, planners, engineers, scientists, policy makers, advocates, academics, students -- landscape architects and many, many more -- working in Massachusetts and Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island and Vermont and Connecticut and beyond, what are you seeing in your work now?
As we consider the New England landscape, where do we need to go?
The summit invites participants from across our region to discuss climate ISSUES, current and projected, that cities and towns, rural and suburban areas are experiencing in the landscape today, along with ACTIONS that are underway, and that need to grow. Keynote speakers and a lively series of “lightning talks” will share a lively array of projects, and we’ll discuss measuring IMPACT; a vital design consideration as we look ahead.
