Drawing parallels between two case studies in curriculum development in Memphis and New York City, this panel will discuss the benefits of forming educational partnerships to drive long-term social resilience in the communities where we design, work, and build, making a broader case for public landscape curricula.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about the social benefits of partnerships between design firms and educational institutions to co-develop curricula that does not traditionally fall within the scope of landscape projects.
  • Explore contrasting approaches to outreach, place-based learning, designing landscapes with education in mind, and how curricula can function as tools for connecting with the communities landscapes serve.
  • Examine curricula as tools to foster a spirit of advocacy, contribute to active workforce training, and build social resilience.
  • Delve into specific strategies to implement curricula into school science programs and classrooms across contexts.
