Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, along with its Colorado playground consultant, Rocky Mountain Recreation, will exhibit at the 2014 Colorado Parks & Recreation Association (CPRA) Annual Conference Sept. 16-19, in Steamboat Springs. The conference will feature Corey Ciocchetti, associate professor of business ethics and legal studies at the University of Denver, as the keynote speaker. This learning experience was made possible through the 2014-2015 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.

In Ciocchetti’s keynote, he will debate what it means to live an ethical life. More specifically, his session will discuss the ethical frameworks of Utilitarianism, Deontology and Virtue Ethics and how it’s used to evaluate how stress interferes with living such a life. Other ethical implications of stress will be analyzed as well as real world examples of unethical behavior due to stress. Attendees will be given a stress test, which will be followed by 20 meaningful and fun ways to de-stress.

Ciocchetti’s 90-minute session will be presented at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 17. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit Rocky Mountain Recreation and Landscape Structures in the exhibit hall prior to and following the keynote session to learn about the latest trends in playground design including inclusive playgrounds.
