Land is a crucial component of the built environment. Too often, however, projects are designed without regard to their harmful impact on scarce resources, local culture and community, and underlying ecological systems.
As the world’s population grows, so does the rate of global urbanization and development. What is built on the land directly correlates to the impacts on ecological systems and to the health, safety and welfare of our communities.
Expected to draw over 6,000 landscape architects and students, the ASLA Annual Meeting and Expo, hosted October 19–22 in Philadelphia, will offer more than 135 education sessions, including three different sessions and a half-day workshop on SITES.

Parks, gardens and other public spaces have tremendous value to the community—they impact where we live, work, play, gather, exercise and learn.

Advancing your knowledge of green building and sustainability concepts can be easy with these resources at your fingertips. Check out the tools we recommend to help grow your expertise in SITES and the sustainable building industry.
