This debate centres around the positive impact environmental art can have on our landscape and the perception and misconceptions of the need for rapid response to environmental issues and sustainable change rather than reactive short- termism.

Short videos, released in a small series on social media, in response to current events relevant to the landscape.
In this debate, hosted April 2021 as the first of a wide ranging series on the topic, we discuss ways to engage the landscape profession with the challenge of expanding England’s woodland. Hear from a one of the few Landscape Architect’s working for the Forestry Commission about the future of England’s woodland.
This event, hosted in February 2021, focussed on the current GLVIA3 guidance. Published in 2013, this guidance, at the time of the debate, is 8 years old! We hear from a range of practitioners (most importantly, not just landscape architects!) about their experiences, and challenges, of using this guidance and whether it’s time for an update to the guidance!
The first two debates were small internal events held by the Landscape Matters team to test out software and discuss ideas. Unlike all other debates these were not recorded but, in the interest of openness, we thought we’d let you know why the debates appear to start at three!
