With the founding of the U.S. Green Building Council in 1993 and of the Sustainable Sites program, green building technique are now becoming ubiquitous. While there is still much work to be done, it is now time to turn our attention to a second leg of the sustainable development model – community. With this in mind, Kurt Culbertson will explore the role of landscape architects in addressing issues of environmental justice.
- How does our work impact communities?
- Does the improvement of the built environment contribute to gentrification?
- Do landscape architects possess the knowledge and skills to address these issues?
