Lecture topic
What is the role of landscape architects in a changing world?
This lecture investigates the many opportunities for landscape architects to build on past experience and promote new ways of thinking for society and the landscape. It discusses how we as landscape architecture can contribute to issues such as species extinction, climate change, food security, drinkable water, breathable air, a low carbon economy and the challenge of a society which is becoming increasingly urbanized.
It identifies way in which our profession is concerned with what the economists term "common good" and how this has been a theme since the mid C19th when our profession was founded.
