The Importance of Advocating Landscape Architecture

The Importance of Advocating Landscape Architecture

We have officially entered the summer cookout season where friends, neighbors and families come out of hibernation to reunite and catch up, giving you a captive audience to promote the profession. The inevitable questions ‘What do you do?’ or ‘How is work going?’ are the perfect opportunity for you to advocate landscape architecture.  Even though you may be asked to evaluate and redesign the backyard of the cookout host, take advantage of this time and give them your landscape architecture elevator speech.  Many of your friends, neighbors, and family members have high schoolers who may have no idea what a rewarding career landscape architecture can be and these advocacy plugs could help influence their future plans.  And those with younger children can also be tied into this conversation as it is never too early to begin enlightening youth on the profession of landscape architecture.   #iAdvocate #LandscapeArchitecture #ASLA
