Re-imagining a New Outdoors – Call for Ideas and Showcase

Following on from the Reflections Series discussion between Senior Practitioners on the Impact of Covid 19 on the landscape profession in Scotland, Landscape Institute Scotland are issuing this call for ideas to members that focus on how the profession can be at the forefront of reclaiming the outdoors as a part of an immediate set of workable, simple and effective design solutions to Covid 19 going forward as well as supporting the longer term climate crisis action.

The aim is to have an online exhibition and develop it into a digital ideas book for circulation and influencing that will help promote the profession for everyone’s benefit. here
