Landscape architects are skilled at balancing a complex array of different considerations on every project, regardless of its type or scale. To achieve carbon reduction goals, our design approach must incorporate best practices and strategies seamlessly into our practice.

    This session focuses on how to approach decarbonization as designers. Landscape architects are skilled at balancing a complex array of different considerations on every project, regardless of its type or scale. To achieve carbon reduction goals, our design approach must incorporate best practices and strategies seamlessly into our practice. 

    The speakers will discuss how decarbonization strategies can be integrated with the existing project workflow, highlighting priorities and questions to ask at each design phase - from goal setting and team alignment to design decision-making, and technical oversight. A summary of the best practices to achieve reduction targets will be provided and the speakers will share more about the carbon accounting tools available to support designers. The session will conclude with a brief roundtable discussion of how to make the case for this approach with clients and project teams, then opening up to an audience Q + A. 

    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of course participants will be able to:

    1. Understand when to effectively overlay decarbonization approaches onto existing project workflow, phase by phase.
    2. Learn more about the best practices to achieve carbon reduction through design decisions.
    3. Gain an overview of various carbon accounting tools, and when to leverage their strengths.
    4. Explore different approaches to making the case for decarbonizing design with clients and project teams.
