  1. Welcome @Lee-Anne van Wyk I hope you had a wondeful festive break!! Welcome to LI Connect too! I would suggest joining the Midlands branch group which you can find here: https://connect.landscapeinstitute.org/index.php?/forum/40-midlands/ as members of Connect grows, you will be able to make regional / locally relevant connections using this group 🙂 I will also speak to the Branch committee in that area to see if anyone can offer any help here 🙂 Hope this helps but please do take a look around and ask any questions you may have 🙂 Abi

  3. Good afternoon all Firstly, I wanted to re-introduce myself and my new role! At the beginning of December I formally joined LI as the new Standards and Branches Engagement Manager. My role has two parts, one is to aid in the successful management and delivery of technical material we produce, the other is to support and work with each of you, the Branches, to continue all your fantastic work in engaging with the profession and wider industry. I am currently working on the new Handbook with Antonella and we will be looking to update you on this in January. I would love the opportunity to meet with you all, albeit virtually for the time being, and attend your next committee meetings. Secondly, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful festive break. This year, much like 2020, has been difficult for many people for many different reasons, so I hope this break allows you all some time for yourselves and your families. I will be cooking a feast, eating far too much, spending time with family (if we are still allowed), dog walks, reading and general downtime! I am really looking forward to working with you all in the New Year! If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact me directly, either via LI Connect or email, abi.palmer-greenwood@landscapeinstitute.org (sorry that is such a mouthful!)

  18. Update from COP26 Week 1 of the crucial climate summit in Glasgow is drawing to a close. Around 120 world leaders gathered in Glasgow this week for humanity's 'last, best chance' to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. Watch the 'Earth to COP' opening ceremony video Watch Sir David Attenborough's address to world leaders Day 1 announcement: Over 130 leaders commit to reverse deforestation and land degradation Glasgow's Scottish Events Campus officially became UN territory on Friday 29 October - its transformation into the 'Blue Zone' setting the stage for key negotiations between world leaders to take place. Until negotiations close, only parties accredited by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will be able to access the venue. The conference drew some early criticism for its lack of accessibility, with climate activist Alexandria Villaseñor observing: 'The negotiating space that we create, as a planet, is one of the most important aspects of these talks and can ultimately set it up for failure or success.' LI President Jane Findlay has been in attendance at the Blue Zone this week, as well as a number of fringe and external events. Below are just a few of the highlights... 43rd TB Macaulay Lecture: in conversation with Christiana Figueres. After a break in 2020, the annual lecture moved from Edinburgh to Glasgow on 2 November, and focussed on the interplay between sustainable land use, science, communities, and the economy. UKGBC Scotland launch event. The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) officially established its Scottish network on Thursday 4 November. Guest speakers included Minister for Zero Carbon Buildings, Active Travel and Tenants’ Rights Patrick Harvie MSP. The Holyrood Fringe Festival. Holyrood events is hosting a four-day climate fringe festival in Glasgow, with a different climate-based theme each day. Today was all about sustainable cities: with 80% of the world's population living in urban areas, cities worldwide will shoulder much of the responsibility for delivering on the outcomes of COP26. Today's session focussed on innovation in sustainable city management in pursuit of net zero. Tomorrow's session, which Jane will also attend, covers how we mobilise global and local partnerships to reach net zero. The universal challenge of the climate emergency gives us the opportunity to build comprehensive partnerships. Success will mean mobilising and connecting people, communities, organisations, and governments to experiment and innovate, and to design and test the radical policies we need to help us live sustainably. Look out for more updates from week 2 of COP26 on on the LI website and social media channels!
  19. Good afternoon @Konstantinos Konstas and @Henri Hurtebize I think this is a fantastic idea! It would be worth posting in your relevant regional branches groups, if you haven't already. Some of the Branch committee members in these areas may be able to help you out. Thanks for posting! Abi

  24. The Construction Industry Council (CIC) 2050 Group is calling for young professionals, within the Construction Industry, to share what they would like the industry to look like in 2050 by taking a short survey. The 2050 Group, CIC’s young professionals group, represents those in the industry who are at the start of their career to ensure the link between young professionals and the leadership of the industry. Group members represent a range of disciplines from across the built environment, giving their time on behalf of the different Professional Institution members of CIC they represent. The Young Professionals in Construction Survey 2021 is being launched to determine a vision of the future of the construction industry, and the steps that need to be taken to get there. The results of the survey will inform the direction of the 2050 Group’s work going forward to ensure a focus on topics of importance to those that the group represents. Will Arnold, CIC 2050 Group Chair says; “This survey is a fantastic opportunity for young professionals to share what’s important to them when setting the future direction of the industry. The 2050 Group acts as a conduit between the current and future leaders of the profession, and we intend to use the survey results to set a vision for our work over the next two years.” The survey can be accessed here and we encourage young professionals to share it with their peers so the Group can get a wide ranging response to this pertinent topic.
