ExpoPamela Conrad, ASLA

Pamela Conrad, ASLA, is a landscape architect and climate advocate with 20 years’ experience improving the social and ecological impacts of the built environment. Her Midwestern farm upbringing and science background drives her mission to increase equitable and resilient climate change solutions through design.

Over the past decade she has served as a design and advocacy leader through her roles as Principal at CMG Landscape Architecture, Founder of Climate Positive Design, and Climate Action Committee member for the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and American Society of Landscape Architects. She has been recognized as an Architecture 2030 Senior Fellow, 2018 Landscape Architecture Foundation Fellow for Innovation and Leadership, and 2019 SF Business Times NCRE Woman of Influence.

In 2019, Pamela launched Climate Positive Design to inspire climate action in the exterior built environment. This global initiative enables voluntary emissions reductions while increasing carbon sequestration and co-benefits through free and accessible tools, guidance, and resources.

In 2021, she spearheaded the IFLA Climate Action Commitment that was shared at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) to embolden accelerated government policy and united 70,000 landscape architects from 77 nations. To catalyze ongoing change, Pamela speaks and publishes works on landscape architecture, climate action and resilience.
