The 2018 LIS AGM and Reflections talk was a huge success. Many thanks to those that spoke on the night and all our members in attendance. This year we shone a spotlight on the benefits of sharing knowledge with landscape architects overseas.
The evening started with four wonderful talks from landscape architects with experience working overseas for Reflections: Then and Now. The full slides for their presentations can be seen here.
The Mark Turnbull Travel Award for Graduate Landscape Architects was then launched. This award was established in honour of former LIS Chair Mark Turnbull and aims to use overseas travel to gain an insight into best and innovative landscape practice to address some of the current landscape challenges facing Scotland. This award will benefit future generations of graduate landscape architects in Scotland as well as the practice of landscape architecture by bringing overseas experience and knowledge back to the country. For more information, including how to apply, please see here.
The LIS Chair, Rachel Tennant rounded off the evening by highlighting the successes of the LIS over the past year and the plans for the LIS over the coming year. To find out about some of the projects we have planned, please see her full presentation from the night. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with upcoming events.
