Landscape architects, professionals from various regions convened to explore the significant role their field plays in shaping a sustainable and transformative future.
According to statistics, there are more than one million landscape architects in the world and IFLA represents 78 national members and more than 50,000 landscape architects.
However, despite the huge number, there is still a need to create awareness and recognition of the profession.
“ We need to leave no one behind when it comes to such conversations. Inclusion and social justice are important dimensions in sustainable and equitable development. We need to act local, think global and beyond borders the three sub themes of the Congress,” added Florence Nyole, President, AAK.
Emina Kovacic, President of Architects Sweden emphasized on the need to focus on the quality of education for our landscape architects, and stated IFLA Africa’s commitment on strengthening collaboration with universities across the continent.
“Kenya and Sweden have two different geographical zones, but the effects of climate change have no borders. The bilateral form fits well with the theme. The aim is that the form and theme should reflect new methods of collective problem solving and infinite strategies, to find new solutions to critical social issues,” she said.
The International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA ) is a global body of landscape architects represented through national member associations spread through Africa, the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
