With more than 18 years of voluntary services in the professional organisations and design industry, grassroots and marginalised communities, both local and international, Mr Damian Tang has gained tremendous breadth and depth of experiences on what it means to serve in different context of communities, and to lead as lived.

In this July edition of IFLA APR Talk and Share, Damian will share his insights in leading a professional organisation and what it means to serve as a volunteer with very little time to spare. He will distill his years of experience into applicable knowledge and easily comprehensible trends that can prepare you and your organisation for future challenges.

This series of activities aims to enhance landscape education and connect it with international standards, and to encourage countries to develop their own characteristics of landscape education. The geographical and cultural diversity of the Asia-Pacific region makes it important to focus on the development of national competitiveness, geographic self-identity and competitiveness. In the coming year, Talk and Share will invite a wide range of scholars to share different topics in order to contribute to the development of landscape design in the Asia Pacific region.
