LI launches consultation on Green Infrastructure statement

The Landscape Institute is calling on members to share their views on its new draft position statement on green infrastructure.

The Landscape Institute Green Infrastructure Draft Position Statement is now available online as part of a consultation that closes on 16 January.

The statement aims to demonstrate the benefits of green infrastructure in achieving policies on climate change, social cohesion, health and well-being, and economic competitiveness.

The Landscape Institute's Green Infrastructure Working Group has been developing the statement since August.

The green infrastructure position statement is expected to demonstrate to decision makers the critical role landscape architects have to play in the planning, design, implementation and management of green infrastructure.

Landscape architects can share their views with the Landscape Institute's policy and public affairs officer Stephen Russell.

Address: Landscape Institute 33 Great Portland Street, London W1W 8QG
Telephone: 020 7299 4509
