The greatest value of landscape is the way in which it connects people, place and nature. The LI, in partnership with IFLA Europe and the University of Greenwich Department of Landscape, is holding its 2018 conference on this crucial theme.
Day one of the conference (6 September) is a day of high-level debate for leaders and practitioners in landscape. To help bring this fantastic day of content to a wider audience, we will be live streaming all talks and panel discussions throughout the day. The morning (9am to 1.45pm) will be free to view, while access to the afternoon sessions (1.45 to 6pm) will be paid.
