Our MD, James Hewetson-Brown, attended The Landscape Institute Awards on the 28th November, 2019. Held at The Troxy in London, this year’s awards attracted over 180 entries.
The winning projects included a focus on: better management of water resources, using natural methods to mitigate hurricane damage, reclaiming streets and green spaces, improving air quality, connecting communities, and restoring habitats.
LI President, Adam White said, “In June this year, the LI declared a climate and biodiversity emergency. That’s why I’m particularly impressed to see the range of projects leading the way in developing innovative ideas and approaches at this crucial time for our planet. At a time when we are seeing more and more extreme weather, from flooding in Yorkshire and Derbyshire to wildfires burning on several continents, we have the opportunity – as individuals and as a profession – to make a real difference.”
Guest of honour, Sir David Attenborough, received the LI Medal for Lifetime Achievement at the awards and spoke about the importance of reconnecting communities with nature and the part this can play in ensuring the natural world’s protection.
What’s Growing on the Greenway, (focussing on the Connswater Community Greenway, a project that Wildflower Turf Ltd has supplied to) won both Communications and Presentation Award and the prestigious LI President’s Award at the November event.
