    Visual Resource Stewardship Conference

    October 19-22, 2021

    The biennial conference aims to catalyze ideas and innovation between academia, practice, NGOs and government agencies who work to address analysis, planning, valuation, design and management of visual resources. Join our community to share ideas and discuss the issues associated with the assessment and protection of visual resources in an era of major landscape change - regionally, national and globally.

    The Visual Resource Stewardship conference only happens every other year, so you do not want to miss it. The virtual format has allowed us to significantly reduce registration--at $35 it is a steal! Students are only $6. Workshops are an extra $40 each for one and a half hours of instruction.

    The Social Responsibility of Landscape Architects

    Credits: 1.5 PDH - HSW (pending)

    October 28, 2021 | 2 PM EST

    Instructors: Ernest C. Wong, PLA, FASLA, APA – Founder and Principal, site

    Sean O’Malley, RLA – Managing Principal, SWA Laguna Beach

    Lovisa Kjerrgren – Associate, SWA Laguna Beach


    As Landscape Architects, the work that we engage in is important. The ability to shape and enhance the public realm and community institutions affords landscape architects a unique ability to improve quality of life for often underserved communities. We design public spaces, private spaces, places for playing, places for healing, spaces that capture the essence of who we are as human beings.

    While numerous Landscape Architects have and continue to serve on public and governmental committees and commissions, it is the exposure to the general public that enhances our status as professionals. So above serving ourselves and our profession, we need to look beyond the small microcosm of our design world. We need to position ourselves to serve in the public realm, where our voices can be heard and our decisions can impact communities beyond just design.

    Through this course, Ernie Wong, Sean O’Malley and Lovisa Kjerrgren will share example from their experiences working with community institutions, nonprofit organizations and their service and commitment to facilitate impactful change with the work they do.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will learn about the importance of partnering with non-profit and community-based organizations, and how landscape architects are uniquely positioned to connect such entities.

    2. Learn what social responsibility means for Landscape Architects.

    3. Learn how you can get involved in service work in our profession.

    4. Participants will learn about several tangible examples of community improvement ranging from a larger community or city scale to more site-specific projects.
