Help Build the ASLA Environmental Justice Professional Practice Network (EJ PPN)’s Case Studies Database

One of the most frequently requested resources amongst landscape architects working on environmental justice is a database of precedent projects to reference. Since 2019, the EJ PPN has been collecting case studies in order to build a robust database of precedents. This database will share examples of how to integrate environmental justice into our field of practice.

You may submit your case study by completing this online form, which has a series of questions to collect information about engagement techniques, resources used, project outcomes, and lessons learned. We are interested in featuring your projects that demonstrate how environmental justice principles can be applied to design processes and outcomes.

Examples of incorporating environmental justice into your projects may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • design processes that center on community voices;
  • projects that address disproportionate environmental burdens; and
  • outcomes that honor the cultural integrity of all communities.
