Thank you for joining us for Grounding the Green New Deal: A Summit on Design, Policy, and Advocacy. The Landscape Architecture Foundation
and our partners are excited to convene this pivotal conversation!

Addressing the climate crisis will require an unprecedented scale, scope, and pace of physical landscape transformation. There is an essential
role for all built environment disciplines to play in reimagining this future and translating the goals of decarbonization, jobs, and justice into on-the-ground practices and built works.

But what are the upstream forces that set the stage for climate projects, and how can designers take a more active role in that process? How can advocacy be effectively used to shape policy and inform built environment investments?

We’ve brought together an all-star line-up of advocates, designers, policymakers, and scholars to draw on their experiences and explore the
intersection of policy, design, and advocacy with the goal of identifying ways to accelerate individual and collective actions to effect change.

Get ready for a unique and lively dialogue with insights you can carry forward in your own work or studies. Thank you again for being here today for this historic conversation!
