Landscape Institute launches research project to assess sector value and needs

The Landscape Institute (LI) is conducting a survey to assess the value of the landscape sector and skills needed now and in the future.

It is looking for opinions from anyone who works in the natural and/or built environment and has offered a £300 John Lewis voucher as a prize draw incentive for one participant.

"We want to hear from anyone – LI member or otherwise – who works in the natural and/or built environment sectors. This includes landscape managers and planners, ecologists, urban designers and place makers, engineers, heritage workers and conservationists, architects, researchers, town planners and surveyors," the LI said on its website.

The survey is part of a wider education and practice review being conducted by the LI between now and December, which will also include an education survey and face-to-face and telephone interviews with educators and academics.

The survey takes around 25 minutes to complete. If you work in the built and natural environment professions, and you’re not an LI member, start your survey here. The survey closes at 5pm this Friday. LI members should already have a survey invite but if not, can contact the research partner AHC.
