A future of our own making: AGM 2020 & webinar

18th June, 13:00 - 16:00

18 June 2020, 1-4pm BST
Online

Videos of each short presentation from this event are available to watch online, including several additional presentations as an ‘event fringe.’

Join LRG’s first global webinar and AGM, exploring rapid environmental change through a lens of landscape justice; bringing together imagination, research and practice to look at new ways of seeing, living and working.

By examining power structures, case studies and social imaginaries, we will explore what landscape justice might look like and feel like in everyday life, how it might affect livelihoods, and how we respond to our rapidly changing places.

The events will run in Zoom and everybody who registers will receive information about how to join.

We’ll hear a series of short, informal presentations, and Q&A:

Dhanya Rajagopal, Design Trust for Public Space
