The annual Australian Therapeutic Landscapes Conference 2021
Restorative Landscapes: Rest, Connect, Restore.
3RD SEPTEMBER, 2021
ONLINE LIVE AND PRE-RECORDED TO VIEW ON DEMAND
The Australian Therapeutic Landscapes Conference is an annual event, held in a diﬀerent state each year. It is the only national conference for people working and researching in the therapeutic horticulture sector, and every year brings together between 100-200 delegates from across Australia, New Zealand and internationally.
In 2021, due to the uncertainty with spontaneous travel restrictions, we’ve decided to go online, making this year’s conference GLOBAL!
The conference theme for 2021 is Connect, Rest and Restore. We will explore “Restorative Landscapes” through presentations and panel discussions. It will be a blended format of live and pre-recorded presentations.
The focus of the conference will be on the many and varied ways nature, gardens, horticulture or green spaces can function as restorative spaces – that is, places that improve our health and wellbeing, lower stress and connect us with nature and with others.
Come join us as we discuss the challenges, enablers and impacts of connecting, resting, and restoring health and wellbeing in natural environments, and help each other with practical ideas for the future.
This event is a must-do for people involved in the growing ﬁeld of therapeutic horticulture, including anyone using plant-based activity in the ﬁelds of health, aged care, disabilities, design, education, horticulture or research. Gardeners, come along!
