Event description
Webinar on Climate Change, Trees & Vegetation - How Can Landscape Architects Make a Difference?

About this event

LISW is pleased to host this webinar on climate change with speakers Dr. Deborah Hemmings (Met Office) and Kenton Rogers (Treeconomics).

The presentation will include an update on current research relating to climate change, trees and vegetation including the potential impacts and, more importantly what we, as Landscape Architects can do to support adaption and resilience with our work. Understanding the technical background and opportunities will be key to gaining the support of clients, stakeholders and communities to creating climate and environmentally resilient spaces and places.

Dr Deborah Hemming manages the Vegetation-Climate Interactions (VCI) group which conducts research to improve understanding and modelling of the interactions between vegetation and climate. She is also Senior Visiting Research Fellow at the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research, Birmingham University, studying the seasonal dynamics of phenology and carbon allocation in the mature woodland Free-Air-CO2 Enrichment experiment.

Debbie's personal science is currently focussed on understanding phenological changes (events in nature, such as the timing of bud-burst in different plant species) and their implications for ecosystem resilience under climate / environmental change.

Kenton Rogers is a Chartered Urban Forester and Chartered Environmentalist with a masters degree in Forest Ecosystems Management. He has worked on a wide range of commercial, urban and community forestry projects in the UK, Europe and North Africa. Kenton has provided expert advice on tree valuation, sustainable urban forest planning and the tree benefits approach to groups such as EU cost Action FP1204, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Trees Design Action Group, House of Commons committee’s and UK Forest Research.

Kenton is also co-founder of Treeconomics, a Social Enterprise based at Exeter Science Park. It is the mission of Treeconomics to work with communities, businesses and research institutions to highlight the value of trees. Treeconomics has collaborated in over 30 projects in the UK and abroad (including the UK pilot of i-Tree in Torbay, Valuing London’s Urban Forest, and ongoing work with Highways England), to develop tools for cost benefit analysis of its natural capital.
