2022 IFLA World Congress Gwangju, Korea, 31 August - 2 September 2022
The world has witnessed rapid changes with reactions to the spread of the pandemic, a technological revolution, and political conflicts. In 2022, as professionals, we are entrusted to provide visions for a healthy, happy, and beautiful world and, therefore, will gather to discuss issues of landscape from a global to local scale.
We will have discussions and events to reclaim the public leadership of landscape architecture by re:visiting the professional and academic practices to date, re:shaping the earth through emerging discourse and technologies, re:viving everyday lives in healthier and more vibrant ways, and finally re:connecting back to nature.
We invite you to Gwangju Korea to share ideas and visions to make a better future.
