IFLA world Congress 2019 – Call for Abstracts
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Landscape is a common resource. Landscape architects’ social mission is to enhance the common sharing of this resource for the benefit of current and future generations. In times of global cultural and political diversity, it is key for landscape architecture to seek for common ground. Common ground with landscape architects from different parts of the world to promote sustainable development across borders, common ground with other professions and disciplines to promote transdisciplinary understanding, and common ground between opposing worldviews to promote peace and justice for people all over the world.
We invite abstracts of up to 350 words, including project presentations, critical analyses, reflections and discussions related to the congress theme, linked to the following tracks:
· Sustainable urban transformation
