Youth Engagement Strategy & Toolkit for Landscape Architects

Natalie Walliser

EN_ The UN declared Aug 12 2011 to Aug 11 2011 the International Year of Youth. In recognition, this project aims to provide seed funding for the creation of YES: Youth Engagement Strategy and Toolkit for Landscape Architects (YES Toolkit).

The YES Toolkit may be utilized year-round and during World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM), allowing the landscape architecture community to integrate young people into their promotional and project work. This toolkit will aim to become the resource for Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) members to use in consulting and engaging youth, as well as to inform youth about the possibilities awaiting them as a landscape architect.
