IFLA Europe promotes 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 in Europe. It is the leading body promoting the creation of a sustainable and balanced living environment from a landscape architectural perspective
IFLA Europe, the European Region of IFLA (International Federation of Landscape Architects) is the body representing Landscape Architects at European level. It is an umbrella organisation (since 1989) that brings together professional associations of landscape architects from more than 34 European countries.
The purpose of the Federation is to coordinate the activities of member associations and to ensure that the profession of landscape architecture continues to prosper as it continues to effect the design and management of our environment.
Blue Green Infrastructures (BGI) increase the resilience of urban and rural landscapes, integrating their core functions with natural features and processes. Hurdles exist in the process of translating BGI-related knowledge and data from science to practice, and a tool that facilitates this transfer is still missing. We conducted a research in collaboration with a team of partner organizations (JNCC, IFLA Europe, BiodivERsA, and NRW), to pinpoint key preliminary knowledge to design such a tool, and collected our key findings in a report downloadable on this page.
