The LI have described events at their recent conference as demonstrating the ‘power of the profession’
They say ‘Speakers at this year’s Landscape Institute conference demonstrated the ability of professionals to make a positive difference, in projects as diverse as a flood relief strategy for the North East, a series of massive interventions in China and ways of thinking about parks to ensure that they provide as much benefit as possible to refugees’
The conference, titled Landscape as Infrastructure, was held at Manchester Metropolitan University on 22 June. LI President Merrick Denton-Thompson introduced the conference with a rallying cry to the profession: ‘We need to think very carefully about how we connect with the public. What we really are after is a cultural shift. We are in a unique position at the interface between people and natural systems.’
