LUC have announced  that director of landscape architecture Jennette Emery-Wallis has been awarded with Ambassador for Landscape status by The Landscape Institute.

The purpose of the Ambassador for Landscape initiative is for LI members to engage with school and college students to:

  • Raise the profile of landscape architecture as a profession that makes a real difference to local and national places and environments
  • Engage with school students, so that those with an interest in the built and natural environment, and art and design are aware of the profession as a possible career choice
  • Promote the study of LI-accredited courses at university

Jennette has been an external examiner for landscape architecture courses for over 15 years and regularly gives career talks at primary and secondary schools.

She recently completed a play scheme in her home town of Tunbridge Wells where the local community raised £225k for Calverley Adventure Grounds to be built, which involved a number of local schools in design workshops and the fundraising process.

The scheme was opened by the Tunbridge Wells Borough Mayor in September and you can read more about the project here. She is now working with Tunbridge Wells Free School in a series of design sessions, linked to their architecture and sculpture curriculum theme.
