Summer conference to address GI collaboration
Delivered by the Landscape Institute in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM), this year’s summer conference, ‘Green Infrastructure: Interdisciplinary design and practical delivery’, will address the challenge of ensuring that green infrastructure (GI) is both well designed, ‘and delivered to produce the best outcome for biodiversity and landscape’.
The conference, which takes place at The Burlington Hotel, central Birmingham, on Wednesday 10 July, is aimed at senior and experienced ecological and landscape professionals involved in the practical design and delivery of GI. It will also be relevant to planning and engineering professionals working in both the public and private sectors, and will focus on how, through collaboration, we can achieve more integrated design and effective implementation of GI in a variety of places.
Interdisciplinary design and practical delivery of GI will be explored through presentations, case studies and professional discussion.
Attendees will have opportunities to learn how GI can be designed for biodiversity; to learn more about the technical issues involved in the design and implementation of GI; and to explore and discuss GI from different professional perspectives, in order ‘to identify how barriers to interdisciplinary working can be overcome’.
Speakers will include campaigner, writer and well-known environmentalist Tony Juniper; Pam Warhurst, former chair of the Forestry Commission, Natural England board member and co-founder of Edible Todmorden; and experienced independent ecologist Gary Grant.
