I am very honored to give the 2022 Steve Strom Memorial Lecture at Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, Department of Landscape Architecture on October, 26. 

Opening processes of landscape planning and design to people of diverse backgrounds is key as all are needed in making landscapes more resilient to climate change. I will circe around the question how guided walks, storytelling and mapping can to be successful means to mutually engage with, perceive and understand multifunctional green spaces, inspire ownership, and build capacity for the landscape’s sustainable transformation.
