Who we are new
The Landscape Research Group is a global community of interest. Our staff, Board of Trustees, members and partners represent a broad range of disciplines: geographers, planners, landscape architects, archaeologists and ecologists, to list but a few. This diversity is fundamental to a holistic understanding of landscape – its evolution and its future.
The Landscape Research Group represents a global community of interest dedicated to advancing landscape research and education. The organisation is made up of a small staff team focused on day-to-day operations and communications, who are guided by an active, dedicated Board of Trustees.
The day-to-day running of LRG is carried out by a small, but dedicated team. They work with the Trustees in realising the organisation’s aims of promoting education and research into landscape and develop its community of interest.
