  1. Hello all IFLA Europe have made us aware of a survey on bio-based fertilisers that was sent in by the European Landowners Organisation (ELO). It is a survey designed by the European Landowners Organization(ELO), DLV (United Experts), and Ghent University (UGent) whose objective is to discover attitudes and willingness to pay for bio-based fertilisers. This information will enable the researchers to design strategies to promote the use of bio-based fertilisers while taking into account agricultural producers' opinions. The survey lasts around 15 minutes and the information provided is strictly anonymous and will be used as part of academic research. It can be accessed here: https://ghentagriecon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0IXoWO00Siuz3kG?mc_cid=5127ad97a1&mc_eid=3b5439ac20
  2. We have recently published the results of the GLVIA survey we ran back in September. They can be found here: https://www.landscapeinstitute.org/technical/glvia3-panel/ Thank you to all those who responded. We are incredibly grateful for the feedback.

  4. Hi @Ross White you'd still be welcome to send us your thoughts on GLVIA3. We are always open to feedback. Please email technical@landscapeinstitute.org.
  5. Thank you, Paul. And to all the members on Connect, do check out our journal. It's always jam packed with fabulous articles and showcases the expertise and knowledge held by our professionals.
  6. Hi Tom, @Rebecca Knight and I will meet with the technical committee tomorrow to discuss this and will then let you have our findings.
  7. So, @Thomas Turner and @Louis Varley this is what I have decided is the best course of action (very decisional, me 🙂). We will keep TL live for another year - no changes and we have already let all the users know to post on Connect now. At the end of the year we will keep a static copy as reference and make that available. Having explored all the technical options, this is definitely the one I think will make everyone happy.
  8. @Benjamin Brown I thought you might find this interesting 🙂
  9. So, I am not ignoring the issue. I've been mulling it over for a couple of days. We still have TL for another year (October 2022) as we've now paid for it and we might as well leave it there as a reference but keep advertising Connect as THE new platform to use. In the course of the coming year, I see two options: 1. We will have had permission from Ning to store the static copy and make that available. 2. The current version of the site will have become part of the 'internet archive' and be in the public domain, so we copy/make that available. The important thing is we have time to look into the options now. @Louis Varley, would you say mine is a fair assessment of the situation?
  10. BSI have announced the publication of a new standard, and we think you’re going to like it! See BS 7533-101:2021 – Pavements constructed with clay, concrete or natural stone paving units – Code of practice for the structural design of pavements using modular paving units at bsi.shop. See more at: https://www.landscapeinstitute.org/news/new-british-standard-simplifies-structural-design-modular-pavements/ One of our chartered members has been an integral part of the TC responsible for drafting BS 7533, and this is also something that ought to be shared and celebrated.
  11. Thank you Tom, adding @Louis Varley to the thread. We will keep you posted.
  12. Thank you for posting Lucinda. You might also want to re-post the same in the Announcements forum, to get more traction.
  13. Hi all, we are now looking into an archiving option for TL. The difficulty does not lie in creating a static archive (this we have already done) but in navigating copyright issues with the old hosts, Ning and doing this ethically. We are currently exploring options and talking to Ning to ascertain what is possible.
  14. Happy to do that, and review as the usage of the platform develops.
  15. Robin, thank you for posting. I hope this thread gets lots of traction. Can you think of anyone who's already on Connect we could tag on this?
  16. I like the new style @Louis Varley. Thank you for looking into this so promptly!
  17. Hi @Michael Spence it's great to see you here! 😀 Thank you for your comment. I hope you've taken the survey too.
  18. Hi Toby I have gathered that more information on Kickstart can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/kickstart-scheme The LI are working with Birmingham City Council on a Gateway to Kickstart which will hopefully feed into our new apprenticeship scheme. I hope you receive more answers from landscape professionals who have used the scheme.
  19. Hi Toby, I will ask around in the office. In the meantime, it might be well worth posting the same thing in the general forum (The Garden)?
  20. Hi Billy, thank you for posting. I hope you will find someone soon. @Lionel Fanshawe @Brodie McAllister you don't by any chance know anyone we could put Billy in touch with?
  21. Hey @Billy Ng welcome to Connect. Check out the International forum (if you scroll down the Forum lists you will find it easily), where you can meet other members based abroad. In the time I've been at the LI that specific group of people have provided me with answers to lots of questions I had (e.g. about landscape architecture in Italy, where I am from) and I have made some wonderful connections. Let us know if you need any help, and happy Connecting!
