IFLA EUROPE signs Memorandum of Understanding with Architects’ Council of Europe!
IFLA Europe and Architects’ Council of Europe sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the aim of establishing a strong alliance of professional institutions in environment, planning, architecture, landscape architecture, management and design to better serve professional needs of their respective members, associated partners and thereby society in general.
IFLA EUROPE and the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) have recognised the opportunity for the two professions to work together and strengthen their cooperation. They will be mutually supportive, collaborative and work to ensure this Memorandum of Understanding contributes to their objectives and directly contributes to the aims, aspirations and activities of both organisations.
The two organisations agreed to recognise the distinct nature and standing of the two unique, separate and complementary professions of architecture and landscape architecture, to collaborate and cooperate in order to strengthen the roles of both architecture and landscape architecture, to reinforce the importance of the spatial context, to enhance the quality of life of human beings and to provide enhanced service to support their respective members’ professional needs through joint development, commitment and action.
IFLA Europe and Architects’ Council of Europe will work on mutual benefits and better working synergies and shall explore opportunities for joint positions and/or joint actions towards third parties on issue which are of common interest and value. The first step towards this strengthened cooperation was already made – Architects’ Council of Europe invited IFLA Europe to join the New European Bauhaus Collective platform and made in November 2020 a Statement “Making the Renovation Wave a cultural project” to express initial views on the New European Bauhaus and offer its support to the Commission.
We are looking forward to this cooperation!
