As landscape architects seek to create landscapes that foster equity and inclusion in the public realm, we rarely define our terms. This session brings together a parks commissioner, a historian, and a designer to explore how we think about equity and inclusion in the context of diversity and democracy.
Understand how landscape architects seek to steward equity and inclusion in their public practice.
Learn the significance of thoughtfully defining terms such as equity and inclusion in the context of diversity and democracy as core values.
Recognize the challenges and strategies involved in stewarding equity and inclusion in diverse communities.
Investigate the potential of using equity and inclusion to design and create a stronger public realm.
