The Canadian Landscape Charter Goes on a Road Trip in 2019
Are you interested in discussing the Canadian Landscape Charter? Its applicability? Its reach?
Join Jean Landry in discussion during the Canadian Landscape Charter Tour Sessions, in partnership with CSLA component associations and Universities across Canada, to learn about the Charter and participate in an ongoing conversation about the recognition, management, protection, and celebration of Canada’s landscapes.
The third instalment of the Canadian Landscape Portfolio aimed at illustrating the landscapes of our dreams by soliciting images from our members which showed an exceptional intervention in our landscapes. In these times of environmental and social uncertainties, landscape architects can turn to the landscapes of our dreams to express the principles in the Charter. The following tour date has been confirmed:
WINNIPEG: 7 pm on March 15th, at Fort Gibraltar, Great Hall (866, rue Saint-Joseph)
MONTRÉAL : 4 pm on April 2nd, in room 1150 of the Pavillon de la Faculté de l’aménagement (Université de Montréal, 2940, ch. de la Côte-Ste-Catherine)
