LI members get free tickets to the LI’s online CPD days as part of their membership.

In less than two weeks the Landscape Institute welcomes industry professionals for an interactive 3-day online CPD Conference investigating the Inclusive Environment.

You still have a chance to join them to explore moving away from imperialistic design, considering key legislative requirements and effective planning to identify barriers and facilitate an accessible Inclusive Environment for all.

Phineas Harper, Director of the Open City, will open Day 1 of this event, interrogating the question of accessibility in architecture and urbanism, with a twist. Plus an interactive breakout workshops focusing on the human connection online as a two-way participatory experience.

Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology, Columbia University will open Day 2 with a keynote on Inclusive Cities. Bobby Chakravarthy, Partner at Arcus Consulting will then discuss how behavioral science and cognitive simulation technologies can influence built environment design.

Day 3 begins with the Urban Playground: How child-friendly planning and design can save cities from Tim Gill, founder of Rethinking Childhood. Focusing on four basic building blocks – streets, walking/cycling networks, public space and housing design – Tim will share insights from cities around the world.
