Shortage of landscape architects to be tackled in major new campaign

A major new campaign to address the severe shortage of landscape architects will be launched next week.

The Landscape Institute – the chartered body for landscape architects – will promote the benefits of the profession to young people aged between 11 and 18.

Landscape architects work on a massive range of projects from master planning the 2012 London Olympic site to creating public squares, gardens and parks across the country. They are also playing an increasing role in tackling climate change and building sustainable communities.

At the heart of the campaign, backed by Government advisors CABE Space, will be the launch of a new website, iwanttobealandscapearchitect.com, which will be unveiled at a special event in central London on 14 May.
