The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recently renewed its three-decades-long partnership with the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA).
Together the two groups aim to promote the profession of landscape architecture around the globe. This collaboration will focus on battling climate change; establishing the highest standards of professional practice in design, planning, management, conservation, and development of the landscape; and facilitating exchanges of knowledge and information between IFLA regions and member organizations and ASLA members.
“Climate change is a global crisis that needs to be addressed on a global level. As a nation, the United States is taking bold steps to address the climate crisis, like rejoining the Paris Agreement and convening a climate summit for the spring. ASLA is proud to do our part, and we look forward to taking an active role in IFLA,” said ASLA president Tom Mroz. “We are excited ASLA is partnering with IFLA, especially at this time when there is an opportunity for renewed collaboration and progress globally on climate change and other issues where the landscape architecture profession can provide leadership and insight,” added IFLA president James Hayter.
