Your support is needed now
Climate change, accelerated resource consumption, urban densification and rural development regardless of existing natural and cultural systems, are important issues at the forefront of our time. It's clear that human actions have had considerable influence on our environment and now, as humans, we need to redefine our relationship with our surroundings as well as with each other. Landscape architects have an essential role to play in this important work.
Landscape architects and allied professionals, work to accommodate both the needs of human society and the natural environment, respecting the cultural landscapes of the past, and planning sustainably for the future. As CSLA proclaims in their advocacy stance, ‘Landscape architects are uniquely positioned to address the complex environmental, social, and economic challenges we face today.’ Through research, communication and scholarship, LACF supports building knowledge that will empower professionals moving forward.
