TEP is delighted to support the Landscape Institute as it brings its annual conference to Manchester for the first time in 2017. To mark TEP’s 20th anniversary, TEP is offering 10 free places to students on LI-accredited courses, and 10 free places for Pathway to Chartership (P2C) candidates who could not otherwise afford to attend.
The conference is on the theme of “Landscape as Infrastructure”. It is about how landscape transforms spaces, harmonising disparate elements in a way that creates value and meets the health and economic needs of society.
The speakers at the conference bring examples of landscape’s role in flood and coastal defence, Chinese urban regeneration, delivering an urban forest, creating cycle-able landscapes in London and the Middle East and many other scenarios. The conference will also explore a landscape strategy for England in the 21st century and how the value of urban parks can be unlocked.
Day 1 (22nd June) is at Manchester Metropolitan University and Day 2 (23rd June) includes guided walks of the infrastrcuture (green and grey) of Salford and Manchester.
Cath Neve, TEP’s Director of Landscape Management comments, “TEP is passionate about encouraging the next generation of environmentallly-minded individuals to consider a career in landscape, so we are thrilled to support 20 students and early-career professionals to attend this conference and bring their fresh ideas”.
