Congress Theme - Shared wisdom in an age of change - overview

Never has the discipline of landscape architecture been more relevant than in this age of momentous global change, where current approaches to management of our landscape can no longer be sustained.

IFLA50; shared wisdom in an age of change provides a framework within which to consider our changing landscape through multiple dimensions of wisdom. Whether exploring ancient wisdom, reaching across realms of contemporary knowledge, or imagining a more resilient future, shared wisdom strengthens our ability to effect positive change.

Abstract Submissions may be made under the following themes:

• Contemporary issues around globalisation
• Indigenous wisdom
• Local landscape
• Radical change and resilience
• Rural landscapes
• Urban landscapes

For information about submission guidelines and to submit your abstract please visit the Call for Abstracts page on the www.ifla2013.com
