Cooperation with IFLA

Cooperation with the professional world

IFLA-Europe is the European umbrella organisation of the landscape architecture professional associations. ECLAS has a constant exchange with IFLA-Europe and tries to find as many synergies as possible in line with the many shared goals of the two organisations.

There is mutual representation during both annual assemblies. ECLAS also sends a representative to IFLA-Europe’s School Recognition Panel and is part of the review of study programmes.

Towards a Common Training Framework

ECLAS, the LE:NOTRE Institute and IFLA-Europe are working together in the INNO-Land ERASMUS Project (09/2020 – 08/2022) in order to advance the development of the Common Training Framework for Landscape Architecture in Europe.

You can read more about the project here.

If you want to receive regular information about this process, please subscribe to the INNO-Land project mailing list.
