The Landscape Institute (LI) opposes racism in all its forms. The global Black Lives Matter protests are provoking serious conversations across society, between our members and among our employees. We are reflecting on this, and considering what the response should be for our Institute and profession. We want to:

  • take into account our public interest remit and our responsibility to consider all social impacts and issues in everything we do;
  • consider measures to better address the lack of diversity in our sector;
  • build further on the diversity and inclusion work we have undertaken over the past few years; and
  • ask what more we can do together, as an organisation, a profession and an industry, to tackle racism and systemic injustices

We will make a more detailed statement when we have identifiedwith our Board and other members, what meaningful steps we can take towards true inclusion and real social change. Wrecognise that many members want to know that we are listening, that we are not staying silent, and that we are making a commitment to action in our future strategy and workplan.

If you would like to be involved in these ongoing discussions, we welcome your input. Please get in touch with our Diversity and Inclusion Working Group via diversity@landscapeinstitute.org.

In the meantime, our thoughts are with everyone affected by these events, and with everyone across the world taking a stand for justice and equality.
