Nature, Design, and Health: Explorations of a Landscape Architect

Drawing upon his book of the same title, this webinar chronicles Kamp’s design approach, dedicated to connecting people with nature regardless of their capabilities — from children with autism spectrum disorder to elders with cognitive and physical challenges. He has also explored these ideas in the larger realm, showing how engaging individuals in the stewardship of nature is a critical component of revitalizing hospitals, parks, schools, and communities, and essential to sustaining international programs combating climate change. 

By putting personal health on a continuum with environmental health, Kamp demonstrates how designing with nature is applicable to all design professions and can instill a sense of hope and promise to help us build a more vibrant, resilient, and equitable future.
