Digital Integration and Transformation

28 January 2020, Bristol

Landscape businesses are having to adapt to the increasing need to integrate and use new technologies, which are transforming not just our approach to site analysis and design, but also to project collaboration – connecting front and back office systems to streamline processes and boost efficiency.

Through a range of presentations, case studies and workshops, the next #LICPD digital practice day will demonstrate how others are managing this aspect of the digital transformation, using new technologies, responding to ever-changing client needs and continuing to run their businesses effectively.

Health, Wellbeing and Place

27 February 2020, London

The health and wellbeing of everyone – both physical and mental – is of tremendous value to society. And in recent years, political understanding of the links between health, wellbeing, landscape and place has been growing.

In this follow-up to our hugely successful CPD day in Cardiff in 2018, we will continue to explore the contribution our profession can make to planning, designing and managing healthy landscapes – places that deliver primary prevention and reduce pressure on public services, for us and for future generations.
