Its aim is to supply network and supports for the professional growing, with the implicit purpose of creating environments and contests more attractive, fair and sustainable. The IFLA was founded in Cambridge, England, in September 1948 by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe, its first president. In 1978 IFLA’s headquarter moved to Versailles. Landscape architects are active also in many other fields related to landscape design: i.e. urban development planning and city centers’ requalification. In these situations IFLA promotes and recommends the collaboration between different fundamental professions: town planners, civil engeneers, biologists, geologists and sociologists. IFLA, throughout a permanent committee, plans, coordinates, developes and supervises organization’s general activities, the approach and fundamental guidelines to guarantee high professional standards of its members and the promotion of responses and solutions to all landscape architecture’s issues. Its mission is to promote the landscape architecture profession within a collaborative partnership of the allied built-environment professions, demanding the highest standards of education, training, research and professional practice, and providing leadership and stewardship in all matters.

The IFLA is the international organism that promote the creation of a living environment, globally sustainable and balanced thought architecture and landscape.
