IFLA Europe is a not-for-profit, professional federation formed to serve the mutual interests of its landscape architect members, to promote the profession throughout Europe and to respond effectively to the many challenges of our built and non-built environment.
IFLA Europe main aims are to the promote the profession of landscape architecture at a European level, to represent the profession to the institutions of the European Union, the Council of Europe and to other pan European bodies and also to provide an active framework for spreading information about landscape architecture both within and outside the profession, with specific reference to maintaining comparably high standards of education and professional practice.
IFLA Europe collaborates with the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools (ECLAS) and with the European Landscape Architects Students Association (ELASA). It is a member of the European Environment Bureau and aims to work closely with other related pan-European professional bodies, such as the Architects Council of Europe, the European Council of Town Planners and the European Council of Interior Architects.
IFLA Europe represents 30 national associations of landscape architects across Europe. It covers all the countries of Western Europe, and includes Russia and Turkey and most of the Mediterranean countries within Europe. The organisation is growing both in Central and Eastern Europe. Together, approximately 15,000 landscape architects are represented across Europe.
The IFLA Europe website is growing in popularity every year (804,276* hits in 2007 from an annual usage previously of 107,785* visitors) and the interface has now been updated offering a more comprehensive service world-wide.
IFLA Europe head office is based in Brussels and constitutes the European Region of the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA). IFLA has four regions - Americas, Asia-Pacific, Africa (yet to be formed), Europe (a legal entity in its own right) - and therefore, offers more extensive sponsorship opportunities across the world and different continents, which may benefit the specific demands of your company or organisation.
IFLA Europe offers its partners the opportunity to showcase their business and to make valuable contacts with key decision-makers in the areas of landscape architecture, including (but not limited to) master-planning, project design, urban design, project implementation, contract administration, land management and landscape planning.
