Presenters will share insights, research, and findings from the launch of a new online platform: the Vacant Land Stewardship Online Resource Center. This session will range from a discussion of national policies that have created vacant land; the difficulties of defining ‘vacant land’; and a reflection on why ‘vacant land’ grapples with its ecological identity. Together we will explore inspirational and locally nuanced solutions arising from vacant land stewardship projects across the country.
By the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
Articulate recent, national trends influencing the creation and stewardship of vacant land in cities and towns across the United States.
Better describe the opportunity for landscape architects interested in contributing to solutions for communities with vacant property.
Compare approaches to community-led and design-supported land stewardship, site design, and land revitalization strategies at the scale of a neighborhood or district.
Describe how well-designed solutions to vacant land management can support a more equitable future.
