What we do
The Landscape Research Group (LRG) is an international, independent and not-for-profit membership organisation.
We work to advance interdisciplinary landscape research through dissemination, communication and exchange across global communities of interest. Read more about us and our approach.
We do this in a number of varied ways:
- We produce an academic peer-reviewed journal, Landscape Research, published by Taylor & Francis, which includes a wide variety of articles from across the world.
- We host the Landscape Exchange, an online multimedia space for our members to share their work, thoughts and ideas, to support and encourage an inter- and trans-disciplinary approach to current planetary challenges. It includes podcasts, videos, images and writing. We also produce the Landscape Exchange Magazine (for launch 2021), a curated online multimedia magazine.
- We have an Annual Research Fund and award grants for work which aligns with our research priorities, as set out in our current Research Strategy. The Strategy focuses on what we believe to be the key issues within current landscape research and practice, and calls for creative and proactive responses to some of the major challenges facing modern society.
- We run events – conferences, debates, seminars, field trips – to provide a space to bring together our communities of interest, bring all aspects of our work together, and to further debate and practice.
- We partner with organisations on a range of projects to encourage a multi- and inter-disciplinary approach to landscape, for example HERCULES, and the Permanent European Conference for the Study of the Rural Landscape (PECSRL). If you are an individual or organisation keen to work with us on a particular project, please be in touch.
There are many ways you can get involved with the work of the Landscape Research Group – including supporting our work by joining as a member – but if you have any further ideas, please do be in touch. We welcome and actively encourage interest from all spheres – academia, practice, NGOs, public bodies, creative – and of course all locations.
