Registration is now open for Landscape50, a landmark international conference that brings together leading thinkers and practitioners from around the world to set out a bold future vision for landscape practice. This event presents a unique opportunity to hear from global leaders at the forefront of the discipline.
Landscape50 features nine speakers that represent the multi-disciplinary nature of landscape, and who have been responsible for shaping the agenda in their own fields of practice and research. A series of thought-provoking presentations will show how landscape should be at the core of addressing major global challenges such as climate change, population shift, and increasing urbanisation.
Landscape50 celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Department of Landscape at the University of Sheffield, the first independent school of landscape to be established in the UK, and now one of the leading landscape research and teaching units in the world.
