New Landscape Declaration

Landscape architecture has a vital role to play in solving the defining issues of our time: climate change, species extinction, rapid urbanization, and inequity. We invite you to engage in this critical, provocative, and inspirational examination of the power of landscape architecture, and to join our passionate community working to answer the call to action.

I commend LAF for convening landscape architects to act upon the challenges facing our planet and for taking us to the next level of purpose and clarity.

Raquel Peñalosa, IFLA Americas

LAF is grateful to the many individuals and organizations that provide financial support towards fulfilling our mission to support the preservation, improvement, and enhancement of the environment.

Much of what LAF is able to accomplish would not be possible without the thought leadership and financial investment of our major supporters, including ASLA, which provides over $125,000 of in-kind support annually.
