June 2017
ASLA Southeast Regional Conference  
Thursday, June 8, 2017 - Saturday, June 10, 2017 - All Day
Charlotte, NC

The Southeast region has enjoyed a recent increased pace of development and the trend is continuing upward.  Municipal, private and joint-venture development opportunities have been created by the region’s growing population and increased financial stability.  Now, more than ever, we must continue our diligence in designing across the lines that separate professionals, municipalities, geographical areas and cultural divisions. 

Learn new techniques and trends by enrolling in educational sessions, and celebrate the region’s finest examples of our profession.  The Southeast region invites you to educate, learn and celebrate.  Join us in Charlotte as we share our successes and lessons learned so that we can put into practice solutions for our region, states, cities, towns, neighborhoods, and sites.

BIOPHILIC DESIGN Making Raleigh a Healthy Habitat for Human Development

The majority of people live in cities. A growing body of research demonstrates the positive impact of nature on human functioning – the younger the person, the greater the impact. With this in mind, where can increases in biodiversity have the greatest human impact? How can communities be engaged in this critical mission? What models can we learn from?

Robin Moore, Professor of Landscape Architecture and co-founder/director of the Natural Learning Initiative (NLI), College of Design, N.C. State University.
