Environmental Justice Event Guide

Landscape architects play significant roles in how the environment and social conditions are shaped in our everyday lives. As the impacts of climate change affect the world’s most vulnerable and marginalized communities, it is imperative that our work as designers and policy makers embrace the principles of environmental justice. 

The ASLA Environmental Justice PPN leadership team has created an event guide for hosting a chapter or student chapter event focused on environmental justice through a landscape architecture lens. The document includes resources and guiding questions that you can use to program and plan for an EJ event in your own community.
