After several years of anxious and increasingly excited talk of how climate change will radically change society unless we respond immediately, and...BANG! We are side-swiped by a global pandemic that immediately and radically changed society. Many of us have now experienced over a full year of lock-down...but are we OK?

Early on in the pandemic, we began to check in on others. It became common for emails and texts to ask, are you OK? Perhaps it is time to turn this question over to the design community? How do we integrate this question into the work we do? Is there a need to explore post-traumatic landscapes? We are at the edge of an epoch. We will look back on this time from a POST-covid era. Will you say, “Hey, I’m just glad I checked in...”

If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it has taught us that the impacts can be as radical, as swift and almost always just off the radar.

Given the depth and breadth of landscape practice, submissions are welcome across a range of themes, including but not limited to climate and environmental change, epidemiological environments, physical and mental health, biodiversity, local and regional ecologies and economies, urbanism and migration in a post-covid world, open space design, and your own unique experiences of the past two years. We welcome all submissions to take stock and consider the impact of the present on the practices of the future.
