Change can be difficult, but also stimulating. As we begin to adjust to our 'new normal' post-pandemic, landscape architects must innovate and learn to adapt to many issues at the forefront of change impacting our work and our communities- such as the ongoing climate crisis, the development of Bill 23, and addressing racial and social inequities. We must be prepared to take on sudden change as an opportunity.

On September 28-29, 2023, join the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects (OALA) in Toronto for Sudden Change: Transformative Solutions, a conference that will explore the integral role landscape architects play in creating innovative and adaptive solutions for the well-being of our communities.

Over two days there are many opportunities to learn and engage with colleagues.
