"Sensory Landscaping. See and hear." Podcast of the series "Shades of Green"

21 of November '22

"Shades of Green" is a podcast series hosted by Maja Skibinska and Joanna Paniec about the glories and shadows of landscape architecture. We invite you to listen to the episode dedicated to.... the senses.

"Betonosis" prevailing in Polish cities, progressive climate change and the experience of pandemics are changing human consciousness. Ecological slogans, which only a few years ago were characterized as typical of radical environmentalists, are now widely discussed. The above-mentioned phenomena have probably initiated a major social and cultural change, the effects of which we will observe in the coming years. More and more is being said about the health-promoting qualities of contact with nature, and pro-environmental, do-social and universal design is gradually becoming the norm. Topics related to the shaping of public space arouse a lot of emotion and increasingly activate local communities.

Thelandscape architects direct their popularizing podcast to both professionals and amateurs interested in shaping environments that support well-being. You can read the interview with the podcast's creators here.
