The Irish Landscape Institute celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year with a conference on the theme of Green Infrastructure (GI) and making progress in Ireland towards the remediation and transformation of the landscape. This year is also important for GI policy in Ireland and Europe. Protecting and enhancing Green Infrastructure is a priority action of the Framework for Sustainable Development in Ireland and the European Union has published its policy on GI in The Multifunctionality of Green Infrastructure document. The expertise of landscape professionals is needed now more than ever to provide innovation, robust design and maximise the benefits of GI. The multidisciplinary nature of GI is reflected in this Conference’s programme, bringing together landscape architects and professionals, engineers, landscape ecologists, planners, architects, journalists, heritage officers, psychologists and economists. The global importance of GI is reflected in our speakers from Asia, North America and Europe.
