Since 2013, Melbourne-based charity Global Gardens of Peace has challenged and extended the traditional understandings of landscape. The group views what they do in landscapes as professional interventions that support the physical, social, emotional and psychological dimensions of societies and cultures, and which have the power to disrupt patterns of hopelessness through the activation of green spaces.

Join Global Gardens of Peace as they lead a highly engaging workshop of exploring perceptions, thoughts and attitudes. Can landscape design activate cultural and social transformation? Can we create landscapes that have profound positive impacts on people’s lives? Explore new landscapes and ideas that will open the way you think about the land around you.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
