ASLA Renews Commitment to International Federation of Landscape Architects

Partnership Focused on Climate Change and Establishing Standards

IFLA represents the world body of landscape architects through its member associations and regions and in both governmental and non-governmental organizations. With the mission of promoting the landscape architecture profession within a collaborative partnership of the allied built-environment professions, demanding the highest standards of education, training, research and professional practice, and providing leadership and stewardship in all matters.

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) announced they have renewed their partnership with the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA). The two organizations have been working together for the past thirty years and will continue to collaborate with one another to promote landscape architecture within the United States and abroad. In the ASLA's announcement, they outlined "establishing the highest standards of professional practice in design, planning, management, conservation, and development of the landscape" and their battle with climate change as the main areas of focus they intend to prioritize with the aid of IFLA.


"We are excited that ASLA is partnering with IFLA, said IFLA president James Hayter, "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."
