Landscape Institute talks focus on green infrastructure

The Landscape Institute is holding a series of free seminars for its members to examine green infrastructure.

Following two successful workshops on the same topic held last year, the institute has extended the programme with a further three events.

Sponsored by WRAP, the government-funded agency on waste reduction and recycling, the seminars will feature landscape architects Annie Coombs and Peter Wilder and planner Colin White.

WRAP landscape and regeneration programme manager Paul Mathers will also speak at the events. Coombs will discuss understanding and implementing green infrastructure, while Wilder will examine housing and sustainable suburbia. White will speak from a planning perspective.

The next seminars are being held in Edinburgh on 4 and 25 February in Manchester and 11 March in Exeter. To book for the Edinburgh session, register through www.landscapeinstitute.org.uk. Registration for Manchester and Exeter will open shortly.
