LI Awards 2022

The LI Awards are all about celebrating people, place and nature, and the myriad ways that landscape projects can connect them. It celebrates spaces that people can be truly proud of.

In February 2022 the government published its long-awaited Levelling Up White Paper, outlining its mission to ‘level up’ the country. The paper reflects the fact that placemaking, green spaces and the built environment will be instrumental to this agenda. We know that landscape professionals across the globe are already implementing this holistic vision and the awards will celebrate their exceptional contributions.

‘Landscape professionals can implement this holistic vision, delivering nature-based solutions, giving local communities a voice, and designing spaces that people can be truly proud of.” Said Sue Morgan, CEO, Landscape Institute.

The LI Awards 2022 celebrate the exceptional contribution of landscape designers, managers, planners, researchers, local authorities, and more across the world in levelling up and creating a better place to live.
