Jo Wall is to talk on an award-winning Green Infrastructure Action Plan for Pollinators by the landscape and environmental practice she directs, TACP based in Cardiff.
The action plan focused on land owned by the public sector and key stakeholders across four local authority areas of Monmouthshire, Blaenau-Gwent, Caerphilly and Torfaen.
It was designed to consider how public organisations could embed sustainable management principles in their day-to-day work.
Wall is one of several landscape professionals to talk tonight (12 December) at a Landscape Institute event focusing on 10 years of president’s awards.
She said: "The plan can be used strategically by councils using mapping, historical and other data to improve biodiversity in a cost-effective way to maximise return on investment.
"For example they can quite effectively improve the biodiversity of roadside verges to improve linkages between areas across council boundaries."
Wall will give her talk at the Building Centre in London with Monmouthshire Council's principal green infrastructure and landscape officer Colette Bosley.
Other president’s award-winning projects and speakers include Making Space in Dalston, east London by J&L Gibbons' Johanna Gibbons and Leicester Square by Burns + Nice's Marie Burns.
Neil Mattinson from LDA Design will talk about Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park post games while the practice's Alister Kratt will discuss Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project. The lagoon will be the first purpose-built tidal range power station in the world and represents a new generation of renewable carbon-free energy production for the UK.
Finally KLA's Lynn Kinnear will talk about Brentford High Street's ‘Making the Connection’ before Landscape Institute president Merrick Denton-Thompson takes to the podium. He will be joined by ex-presidents Noel Farrer and Sue Illman to discuss what the awards tell us about society and the profession and how landscape practice is changing.
The Landscape Industry Awards 2016 Exhibition runs to 23 December at the Building Centre, Store Street, London, WC1E 7BT.
Speakers for tonight's event start from 6pm and tickets cost £10 for the public and £5 for students. http://www.buildingcentre.co.uk/events/from-city-centres-to-channel-tides
