IFLA Europe organises second online webinar on professional recognition and update on Common Training Framework, 9 December 2022 at 15hrs CET
This webinar is the continuation of the first online webinar held in March 2022 about the Recognition of landscape architecture profession in Europe.
At the webinar held in March 2022, Katerina Gkoltsiou, President of IFLA Europe, described the current context of the profession based on the results of IFLA Europe Survey, the countries where the profession is regulated or not, and pointed out the challenge of the poor recognition of the profession in terms of identification and scope of duties, struggling with encroaching on its competences by other professions.
It was concluded that a clear, European wide definition of competences would help, together with a good educational system. The roadmap should focus on a Common Training Framework which is under elaboration, combined with complains at national level to the European Commission or National Bodies.
The meeting on 9 December 2022 will focus more on the latest achievements of the Common Training Framework and feedback received from our Member Associations. It will also showcase best practice and an experience of non-regulated country.
The event will include debate and questions. Representatives from countries where the profession is recognised will speak about their experience and give helpful advice to National Associations still in process of recognising the profession. The online workshop will also include round table discussion where National Associations will be able to ask questions.
