To celebrate the Landscape Institute’s 90th anniversary (#LI90), a series of three CPD workshops have been developed for landscape architects and other built environment professionals to develop skills and confidence in community engagement and co-design.

Do you have the skills for co-design?

The recent ‘State of Landscape’ report revealed that one of the top skills required from the landscape architecture profession is community and stakeholder engagement (50% of the profession requires this). This series of CPD events seeks to upskill landscape and urban design professionals in this critical skills gap

Digital Technology for Participatory Place Design (Workshop 3/3)*

In the third of a trio of workshops, learn how to use digital tools for engagement on community engagement projects with Jo Morrison of Calvium. Jo will discuss how digital tools can be appropriately harnessed to enhance the engagement experience of participants, and how to exploit the power of digital media and technology to involve people that may be traditionally excluded or less motivated to participate in the placemaking process. Sharing her experience of working with developers and communities on innovative projects such as Ideascape (Tiger Bay, Cardiff) Jo will highlight the opportunities and challenges of integrating digital tools into engagement projects with communities.

About the speaker:

Focusing on digital innovation and multidisciplinary collaboration, she creates and delivers successful strategies and projects to maximise impact, accelerate growth and create rich customer experiences across a range of sectors – including the built environment, creative and cultural industries and education.
