American Society of Landscape Architect’s Climate Action Plan in Oregon

October 13, 2023, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

What is Landscape Architecture’s climate action role in Oregon? The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) released its Climate Action Plan in the fall of 2022. April Philips, founder of April Philips Design Works, ASLA Climate Action Committee Chair and Oregon resident, will lead an overview of the Plan, and present several key strategies we can deploy here in Oregon that respond to our state’s unique problems and opportunities. Philips will be joined by members of the ASLA Oregon Chapter Climate Action Committee, who will provide an update on the Oregon Climate Action Committee’s current work and future plans.

April Philips, FASLA, chair of the ASLA Climate Action Committee (CAC), is a registered landscape architect, thought leader, artist, author and climate advocate. Founder of April Philips Design Works (APDW), an award-winning landscape architecture firm in California, her firm focuses on a fusion of nature, art, and technology with deep roots in a regenerative landscape ecology. Since mid-2022, APDW 3.0 – her current firm evolution, April has re-focused her primary time and energies towards climate action advocacy, lecturing, traveling, and making art that speaks to the experiential beauty and spirit of place.

As chair of the ASLA Climate Action Committee (CAC), April leads the group that provides input to ASLA leadership on strategies for communicating the role of landscape architecture in mitigating and adapting to climate change. The committee explores, develops, and promotes programs, products, and services that provide current research data and learning opportunities available to practitioners.
