In the past 60 years China has made tremendous achievements in all areas of landscape architecture, especially in national and provincial Garden City actions, urban green space system planning, design and construction, preservation of historic gardens, and national parks stewardship and management.
IFLA 47th World Congress, organised by the Chinese Society of Landscape Architecture and the International Federation of Landscape Architects, supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of the People's Republic of China, co-organized by Suzhou People's Government and Department of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of Jiangsu Province, and sponsored by China Architectural Culture Centre, will be held inSuzhou, China from 28-30 May 2010.
The Congress will focus on cherishing and protecting traditional natural and cultural values. It will try to balance tradition and development in today's society in the broader context of rapid globalization and urbanization. Suzhou is an excellent example of achieving this balance - an old city in which historic sites, traditional gardens and successful modern landscape development are mingled together.
Seven sessions include: (1) Protection of Natural and Cultural Resources; (2) Eco-system Rehabilitation/Restoration/Development; (3) Landscape Planning & Design; (4) Landscape Architectural Education; (5) Sustainable Landscape Construction & Technology; (6) Landscape Stewardship and Management; and (7) Landscape Planting.
With great enthusiasm the Chinese Society of Landscape Architecture looks forward to discussing these significant challenges and opportunities with overseas colleagues and friends who have interesting and informative experiences to share, as well as with landscape architecture students. We would also like to share the experience and charm of life and culture here with you.
