With its broad focus on how landscape design can enhance community well-being with better decisions for our future generations centered around sustainable environments, here’s what our colleagues are bringing to the table:

  • Patricia Lussier and Marie-Eve Parent will present their talk Reimagining Landscape Architecture as a Source of Missing Intergenerational Space in Cities on June 16th from 11am to 11:45am.

The details: How intergenerational landscape design and placemaking strategies can help reconnect once-separated generations of people young and old through nature, and the benefits that come from them.

  • Patricia Lussier and Ariane Malo-Sauve present Inviting Nature Back In: Repositioning Public Space to Benefit Both Community and Biodiversity on June 17th from 2pm to 2:45pm.

The details: By rewilding urban landscapes in ways that move away from manicured aesthetics and towards self-sustaining interventions, cities can form more socially inclusive and accessible spaces with biodiversity-centric approaches.

Please note that the following times for these presentations are on Central Standard Time.
