Regenerative landscapes for a changing climate

Regenerative landscapes for a changing climate



Regenerative landscapes for a changing climate  

Creating positive project outcomes for biodiverse and resilient futures.

Our landscapes play a major role in both planetary and human health. First Nations understandings of Country have long considered people connected holistically to place and there is much for the broader Australian population to learn. To meet the challenges of a changing climate and a biodiversity crisis we need to move beyond a “net zero” or “sustainable” approach on projects towards regenerative design that enhances ecosystem health, biodiversity, and the resilience of our natural systems.
Join us as we explore nature positive design approaches – both the opportunities they present for place and planet but also the obstacles we face in implementing these options on projects, including: 

- Regenerative development principles for blue green infrastructure.     
- Future trends in tree selection based on our changing climate.   
- Growing native grasslands successfully on public and private developments.   


Elly Russell, Victorian Landscape Architecture Lead, Arup
