Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning: Pathways to Sustainability

The Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning is held every three years to bring together experts who are influencing landscape planning, policy making and greenway planning from the local to international level. It is intended to highlight recent trends and expand the literature about landscape and greenway planning. This year, speakers from 26 countries will be coming to share how they have approached greenway planning and to communicate how greenways have been tailored to each county’s unique geographical, cultural, and political circumstances. The world is in a state of social, economic, political, and ecological change. From global climate change to urbanization, planners and landscape architects are grappling with unprecedented change as they respond to growing demand for limited resources.
