Recorded Presentations

Mar 4, 2013 ‐ Dec 18, 2017


On March 4, 2019, experts from ASLA’s interdisciplinary Blue Ribbon Panel on Climate Change and Resilience presented their report, Smart Policies for a Changing Climate, during a congressional briefing on Capitol Hill. The report outlines a bold vision for 21st century green infrastructure investment to create healthy, climate-smart, and resilient communities from coast to coast. It is a blueprint for securing a sustainable and resilient future through design and planning approaches as well as specific public policy recommendations.

Though we are all vulnerable to the health impacts of climate change, some groups are disproportionately affected. Climate-related health challenges are an environmental justice issue because certain communities that already experience multiple environmental health burdens are also disproportionately affected by climate change. Our challenge is to put these recommended planning approaches and public policies into practice as standard operating procedure for communities of all sizes and for all types of development.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify how green infrastructure uses trees, plants, and permeable hard surfaces to capture and filter stormwater to reduce pollution run-off, mitigate the urban heat-island effect, and provide community amenities and assets.
  2. Illustrate how utilizing natural systems and integrating green infrastructure into the built environment can be the most cost effective solution for meeting multiple public policy objectives.
  3. Discuss how to address environmental justice and racial and society equity issues that impact climate vulnerable communities.

Sessions

West Laurel Hill’s Nature’s Sanctuary: A Green Path to Perpetual Care - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Apr 30, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Apr 30, 2019 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

Learn about the innovative strategies implemented to transform a former cemetery dumpsite into a natural burial cemetery. The project design team used a fresh design approach which is in stark contrast to traditional industry standards for burial and perpetual care. In 2018, this new cemetery site was the first cemetery to receive SITES certification and only the 8th in the country to receive SITES Gold certification. Get an in-depth look at individual SITES v2 pre-requisites and credits attained by the project and learn about the certification process and working with GBCI to navigate your project from registration through final review.

Participants will need to pass the exam at the end of the presentation in order to receive a certificate of completion. 

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the pre-requisites necessary for SITES certification.
  2. Participants will learn about the stormwater and planting design elements implemented to achieve SITES certification, and how other projects may potentially follow the green design criteria necessary to achieve SITES certification.
  3. Identify projects that are suitable for SITES Certification.
  4. Participants will learn how Nature’s sanctuary utilized salvaged, recycled and locally sourced materials to earn credits toward SITES certification, and apply similar techniques to their own projects.

Our Beloved Fountain: Making Water Features Sustainable - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Mar 19, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Mar 19, 2019 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

Fountains are beloved features in many public places and contribute to quality of life while adding environmental benefits, particularly during hot summer months. However, many parks departments and commissioning bodies shy away from installing them due to the perceived high cost of installation and ongoing maintenance. Some recurring questions neighborhoods may face are whether alternative funding models can keep the water flowing if a city or town won’t perform regular upkeep. What are the impacts of a dormant fountain? What are the environmental effects, both positive and negative? We will explore these questions, explain the typical pool, pass through and recirculating systems, and share insights on sustainable best practices.

Hosted by the ASLA Water Conservation Professional Practice Network

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the social value of fountains and water features while balancing the economic and environmental costs of designing and maintaining them in the context of sustainability and the Triple Bottom Line (TBL).
  • Familiarize oneself with the basics of water feature layout and design to understand the requirements of equipment maintenance and minimize water waste.
  • Provide some examples of converting non-sustainable water features into sustainable ones through recirculation, filtration, and active management.

Designing (Digital) Landscapes: Using Social Media to Raise Awareness - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/non-HSW)

Feb 27, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Feb 27, 2019 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

Social media can be an invaluable tool to landscape architects and the larger design community. One of our profession’s biggest problems is a lack of recognition by allied professionals and clients. Social media plays a critical role in how digital-savvy landscape architects control the profession’s narrative in an architecture-focused media landscape.

This presentation will provide helpful tips for creating a social media strategy, define best practices, and explore ways to crowdsource content. We’ll also share tricks for organically attracting and retaining followers, tips for improving post engagement, and ways to prove ROI through routine analytics monitoring and reporting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Clearly identify which social media platforms their firms should be on (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) and why.
  • Analyze social media insights (data) that will tell them when the best time for posting is, what content their audience likes, and how often they should be posting.
  • Understand how important reporting on social media performance is for ROI and justifying the investment of resources.
