About Symposium

The 7th International Symposium on Sustainable Landscape Development (ISSLD) is focused on exploring the potential of green open spaces and technology disruption in landscape architecture to create sustainable and resilient environments post the COVID-19 pandemic. The symposium aims to examine case studies that highlight the use of green open spaces for improving physical and mental health, mitigating disasters, adapting to endemic spread, and incorporating technological advancements in landscape design.
One significant aspect that will be addressed during the symposium is the scientific evidence supporting the positive impact of green open spaces on physical and mental health. Various landscape studies have shown that access to green spaces, such as parks, gardens, and urban forests, can contribute to reduced stress levels, improved cognitive function, increased physical activity, and enhanced overall well-being. The symposium will delve into these findings and explore how landscape architects can leverage green open spaces to create healthier and more resilient communities.
Another important topic that will be discussed is the utilization of green open spaces to mitigate disasters and adapt to endemic spread. Natural disasters and public health emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted the importance of resilient landscapes. The symposium will showcase case studies that demonstrate how landscape architects can design open spaces that serve as buffers against floods, wildfires, and other hazards. Additionally, the symposium will explore how green open spaces can be utilized to facilitate social distancing, promote hygiene practices, and support community resilience during disease outbreaks.
Furthermore, the symposium will emphasize the integration of technology disruption in landscape architecture. Technology advancements, such as 4th Industrial Revolution technologies (e.g., artificial intelligence, internet of things, virtual reality, and robotics), have the potential to revolutionize the field of landscape architecture. Case studies will be presented to illustrate how these technologies can be harnessed to transform landscapes, enhance the efficiency of design processes, improve data collection and analysis, and create immersive and interactive experiences for users of green open spaces.
Overall, the 7th ISSLD will provide a platform for landscape architects, researchers, and professionals to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and explore innovative approaches to sustainable landscape development. By leveraging green open spaces and embracing technological disruptions, the symposium aims to contribute to the creation of resilient, healthy, and sustainable environments in the post-pandemic era.
