Landscape architecture professionals from around the globe will gather June 27– 29 2011 in Zurich, Switzerland for the IFLA World Congress and Expo. Flourishing leaves, mild temperatures and innovative design make Zurich a perfect location for landscape architecture professionals to assemble.
The meeting will feature education sessions, technical visits, round tables and social activities over three days. In addition, you can explore Switzerland, its mountain idyll, hospitality, world-famous gastronomy and unique landscapes on offered Post-Congress-Programme.

The annual IFLA World Congress is a professional congress to be held in Zurich that is expected to be attended by more than 600 professionals and over 100 students from the fields of Landscape Architecture, Landscape Planning, associated professions and research from throughout the world to debate and discuss current topics and exchange experiences.
There will also be a full supporting programme, including excursions, etc., both before and after the Congress.

Aim of the Congress
Each day of the Congress is devoted to a different spatial focal area. While the first day is all about urban landscapes, the second day of the Congress deals with the peri-urban phenomenon in urban agglomerations and the third day concerns specific issues relating to rural land and its changes. The IFLA World Congress in Zurich aims to compare the differing views on these focal areas, enable a dialogue between the top-level experts from throughout the world and formulate the needs of the diverse stakeholders. At the forefront will be the debate on the general concept of landscape, that will encompass all facets of the environment and the interaction between man, nature and the landscape. The Programme Committee is hoping in particular for an inspiring exchange between landscape architects currently working in research, planning or design.

Target audience
All practising landscape architects, students and people working in landscape architecture, landscape development, land use planning, urban planning, architecture, construction, forestry and agricultural engineering, land art, Ministries and Offices for the Environment and Urban Development, Departments for Parks, Gardens and Open Spaces, the media and interested members of the public.
