In 2017, ASLA-MN will revolve around one word: equity. We will discuss how landscape architecture can be a tool to promote social, environmental and economic equity. ASLA-MN will explore innovation and best practices in design and civic engagement, recognizing the changing demographics of our cities and countryside, to address environmental justice and invest in healthy and livable communities.
