“CHANGE” Annual Conference of the Norwegian Association of Landscape Architects NLA - Larvik, 17 September 2021

Changes affect us as landscape architects. The big ideas, the urban development, the natural landscape and the built landscape are changing. Participating design and knowledge of ecology are tools in our work. Our view of aesthetics changes in step with the challenges.

Some changes are almost imperceptible, coming gently, little by little. Others come abruptly and as a shock.

Some changes have major consequences, so great that we can not fully imagine it. The most serious, climate change and loss of biodiversity, threaten the
planet itself. Changes that scare us. Both are the result of human activity.

Most changes can still be positive. We can learn from them. New ideas. New forms of collaboration. New use of our surroundings. New, close places to visit.
New meaning of urban spaces. Are we willing to change? Do we dare to challenge ourselves?
