At the 2016 Landscape Institute Scotland (LIS) Annual General Meeting (AGM) the LIS launched an exciting series of lectures and events that aim to foster greater debate and transfer of knowledge within the profession, to which both members and non-members are invited.
The LIS Reflections series aims to bring together more experienced landscape practitioners with the less experienced, emerging and student generations. It will take the form of a series of events and talks.
These events seek to be a platform for knowledge transfer and give opportunities for discussion between members and the public, regarding a range of contemporary issues that concern and impact upon the landscape profession.
If you are interested in speaking at one of these events, or have any ideas, please get in contact via: firstname.lastname@example.org
