As we come to grips with the role of landscape architects in issues of environmental justice, we look to practice abroad for lessons learned about the impact of design. This panel examines the experiences of three practicing landscape architects from Latin American, Asia, and the Middle East.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain insight into issues of environmental justice and injustice from around the world.
  • Explore unique perspectives about the role of politics in design.
  • Learn best practices for working with diverse communities.
  • Understand current issues in environmental justice in Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
