ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE: THE NEW GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE
1.0 PDH HSW (LA CES) | 2.0 LU HSW (AIA)
April 30th 2015 at University of Maryland

We hope to see you there! REGISTER Now!

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?
In 2004, only 7.84% of professional landscape architects surveyed for the Landscape Architecture Body of Knowledge Study Report rated a mastery of determining user values through engagement an essential communication skill to the profession. In the world of social media, mobile technology, and rapid online public response, is this still true today? Learn how other professionals have explored, tested, and succeeded at participation as part of the design process to provide community based design. Kurt will explore how a mastery of participation skills provides the framework for addressing society’s pressing issues of environmental and social justice. For landscape architects striving to position themselves on the leading edge of practice, learn why environmental justice is the new green infrastructure.
