They have have been retrofitting sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) at estates in the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham to make them fit for a future London that will experience more weather extremes.
Groundwork London and the Landscape Institute have also launched a related competition, Design for Life, which aims to encourage housing providers, designers and local communities to redesign their own green spaces to better respond to the threats of flooding, heatwaves and water shortages.
The competition is free to enter and is open to everyone, regardless of their skills or experience in landscape design. Entrants are invited to show how they would build local resilience to climate change through retrofitting their local landscape, for a chance to win up to £1,000 and a day of expert advice to help develop and implement their idea.
All shortlisted design proposals will be showcased at an event in October, and be featured in the LI journal Landscape, in early 2016. The closing date for submissions is 5pm, 21 September 2015.
