Objectives and Aims of the Webinair

This seminar aims to raise awareness for the challenges and possibilities for landscape architecture in the context of climate change. The course is conceived as an introduction into this broad issue. The main objective is to provide an overview of how landscape architects can contribute to the implementation of mitigation and adaption strategies on regional, local and site level. The first part of the seminar will touch on the scientific, ethical and political context of climate change. Obviously, this introduction will rather raise questions than provide answers. In the following two parts good practise examples of climate change mitigation and adaption will be presented and discussed. The contributions will be provided by experts from different continents in order to show the global dimension of the theme.

The seminar is addressed to a worldwide target group of landscape architecture students or students form neighbouring disciplines interested in learning jointly about this emerging professional field.
