Climate change is the most significant environmental, health, economic, and security challenge of our time. Science tells us that time is running out to make the shift to a clean, carbon-free future, but there is hope. Gina McCarthy will explore how policies, programs, and investments in the United States and beyond can turn the corner to a clean energy future.

McCarthy has dedicated her 35-year career in public service to environmental protection and public health. Her leadership and perseverance have led to federal, state, and local actions on critical environmental issues, and her significant accomplishments include action to advance environmental, clean energy, public transportation, and public health goals consistent with a growing economy in New England and across the United States.

Landscape Resiliency Through Integrated Planting Design and Management - 1.5 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Nov 15, 2019 3:30pm ‐ Nov 15, 2019 5:00pm

Credits: None available.

Resilient landscapes require synchronizing of planting design and management. A planting’s responsiveness to management and change over time critically affects its success and longevity. This session explores departures from the architectural model of design to open, iterative processes that offer greater resilience and more compelling, enduring designs.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss the vulnerabilities of traditional landscape design and management practices for providing landscape resilience and long-term viability of planting designs.
  • Consider how observations from landscape restoration, plant community maturation, succession, and dynamics can more fully inform planting designs and management for better outcomes.
  • Reframe the conventional architectural model of design to an alternative, iterative process promoting more constructive dialogue between long-term design intent and near-term stewardship.
  • Evaluate alternative ways to document short- and long-term management practices that allow for iterative, incremental processes and incorporate ecological principles.

Oct 29, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Oct 29, 2019 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

OLIN Labs, the research and development group within OLIN, is a community of practice that focuses on five interdependent areas of inquiry: Ecology, Technology, Construction, Design and People. Tech Lab​ is responsible for the development and stewardship of custom design technology and workflows for landscape architecture, from parametric design and visualization workflows to mapping, analysis and communication.

This presentation will present the various modes in which OLIN designers and researchers work to develop, implement, and disseminate innovative tech solutions in our practice and beyond through: Education (which includes identification of needs and opportunities in our current practice and internal training), Development (the creation of new tools and methods to meet the needs of our practice), and Research (including external partnerships and primary research to create new knowledge in the realm of technology.) Case studies of current OLIN Labs initiatives will be used to exemplify these three levels of inquiry.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Measure software and tool usage in professional practice and evaluate needs and capacity for training and education.
  2. Assess the impact of creating new custom tools and methods to solve both unique and routine landscape design problems.
  3. Structure research into emerging trends in landscape architectural professional practice.

Developing an Equity Framework - A Case Study: Los Angeles Metro - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

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

Credits: None available.

At its core, inequality exists when there are fundamental differences in access to opportunity. Taking the first steps to address it can be difficult and fraught, with a need to recognize power and fully acknowledge its reality and consequences. In this presentation, learn about developing and implementing a comprehensive agency equity framework based on LA Metro’s Equity Platform. From this discussion, we hope to convey a blueprint for incorporating equity into your own agency’s work as we all work as transportation professionals to undo decades of barriers to mobility. Let’s not just talk about equity - let's define and address it.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess how equity concerns should be identified at an agency wide level.
  • Develop a framework for addressing those concerns.
  • Anticipate resources and other considerations for implementing change to better achieve equity.
