Natural Learning Initiative: New role for Landscape Architecture

NC STATE UNIVERSITY’s Natural Learning Initiative have a been posting on their blog Robin’s Nest. Recently they posted(author unknown) a new post – A New role for Landscape architecture

Like many professions, medicine being an example, landscape architecture is beginning to subdivide into specializations informed by empirical evidence………
At NLI, we believe that landscape architects are a crucial partner in creating new types of landscapes to support active, outdoor lifestyles in childhood. We urge state chapters to get on board, to refocus Olmsted’s vision of landscape architecture as a public health intervention, and to appoint representatives to the new Children’s Outdoor Environments Professional Practice Network (PPN) hosted by ASLA.

An interesting quick read about how landscape architects can provide necessary spaces for children.
