Event description
This year, the LI, IFLA, and hundreds of other professional bodies and local authorities have declared a climate emergency.

About this Event

Now we as a global profession must decide how we respond.

Our Jellicoe 2019 debate, Landscape in Crisis, is devoted to this topic.

We are in the largest crisis of any kind ever to face humankind. Declaring a climate emergency is a start, but delivering on the scale needed to avert the worst consequences is another prospect altogether.

Is landscape doing enough to respond to the scale of the emergency? In the space of just over a year, the world has seen an unprecedented rise in civil disobedience and youth activism. How can we harness this momentum to enhance public engagement in the creation and stewardship of place? Can landscape design, planning and management be a tool for empowering communities as they encounter a growing wave of climate perils?

Join us for an interactive panel debate to answer these questions and more. Part of ‘Landscape in Leicester’, a family of events taking place in Leicester on Thursday 7 November including the LI’s Annual General Meeting, the LI College of Fellows think-tank and our #LICPD day The NPPF: Landscape-Led Planning in Practice, this free and open event features some of the world’s leading thinkers on climate, environment, resilience and sustainability.

Jellicoe 2019 is curated and chaired by sustainability expert Jon Lovell and features a keynote speech from Prof. Chris Rapley, Professor of Climate Science at University College London. View the full timetable here.

We hope to see you there!
