Resilience and Stewardship - 5.25 PDH
Climate change is intensifying the negative impacts of previously accepted development practices, putting people and communities at risk. Landscape architects have the responsibility to address these challenges in practice, advocacy, education, and research. We need a new paradigm for building and enhancing communities that works in harmony with natural systems and considers the needs of all. Sessions in this package of 2021 conference recordings highlight effective, resilient landscape planning and projects that help communities prepare for, adapt to, and mitigate impacts of a changing climate.

2021 session recordings in this package:
Transform your practice by taking responsibility for the carbon footprint of your work. This session reviews innovative tools and frameworks, from planning scale to site and garden design, integrating metrics and soil science. Each panelist will share their findings from translating primary research into accessible tools and best practices.
Discover the Joint Benefits Authority, a new mechanism allowing city departments to jointly plan, implement, and finance multi-purpose projects that maximize nature-based solutions to foster urban resilience.
Designing the Green New Deal (GND) is a collaborative national initiative for designers to inform and advance GND policy ideas for decarbonization, justice, and jobs. Panelists use outcomes from the GND Superstudio and LAF Summit to explore the complex intersection of policy and design and how designers can affect change.
Rural land developments are marketed as peaceful escapes from the city. In reality, development begins with wholesale clearing of the land, destroying habitats and natural hydrology. This session will discuss stormwater management strategies employed at the regional and site level to reduce flood risk and adverse effects of urbanization.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals are an urgent call for action. By applying the principles of sustainable architecture, engineering, education, & science to the design of urban infrastructure, we can support these goals and sustain marine resources, enhance biodiversity, contribute to cleaner environments, broaden disciplinary boundaries, and reduce carbon emissions.
