Kofi Boone, Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at North Carolina State and active member of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) offers a detailed description and reflection on the Designing Equity held in May 2016. Boone describes that event as one that “was diverse in the broad sense; all parts of the workshop contained meaningful participation from women, people of color, and people with a wide range of expertise. In an interpersonal sense, there was also a diversity of thought and ideas.” This two-part article provides context for landscape architects to engage in the conversation about community engaged design and ends with a call to action for practitioners, in the “interest in the future of our relationships between each other and the Earth.”
