How to create community engagement that truly meets people where they are? Landscape architects are navigating increasingly complex issues; carefully and creatively designing engagement processes are vital to success. In this workshop, four designers working in different scales and cultures will share tools. Join us for an interactive, participatory session.
Explore the practice of immersive, community-engaged design from local and global perspectives, across a range of project sizes and types.
Examine how existing methods for engagement have fallen short of inclusivity, and identify ways to create engagement processes that encourage more diverse audiences.
Discuss lessons learned, best practices and emerging models for equitable engagement in vulnerable communities.
Discuss how inclusive engagement processes are a means to invite productive dialogue around pressing issues that impact landscape architecture projects, such as climate change and environmental justice.
Identify ways to measure impact of specific tools and techniques.
Apply community engagement in practice through a hands-on collaborative workshop, and identify approaches for incorporating community input into physical design.
