Call for Presentations: ASLA Great Lakes Region Climate Action Seminar

Date: 2/14/2024 - 3/15/2024

Type: Call for Papers / Submissions

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): International


The ASLA State Chapters for Michigan, Illinois, Upstate NY, Ohio, Minnesota, and Indiana and the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects are pleased to announce the Call for Presentations for the 2024 Great Lakes Region Climate Action Seminar. This is the third event in a series aimed to explore and expand landscape architecture’s role regarding climate change impacts occurring in urban and natural systems across the Great Lakes Region.

The theme for the 2024 Seminar is Design for Biodiversity reflecting ASLA’s recent call for landscape architecture to take a leading role in acknowledging and addressing the biodiversity crisis connected to the climate crisis. This broader call will likely be rooted differently within each bioregion across the continent. Our goal through the seminar is to share research and design models for practitioners specific to the Great Lakes Region. We also hope to raise questions and identify existing gaps for this work so that we can create new initiatives and research in the coming years to meet this grand challenge.

We hope to receive a wide range of submissions to this symposium from landscape architects, allied practitioners, and their collaborators. In that regard, it is preferred, although not required, that presentations be made by groups of presenters, not individuals.
