The role of IFLA Europe |

IFLA Europe as an organisation of professionals is mainly engaged in the first part of the project — developing a Common Training Framework. This means to establish one framework for Landscape Architecture training that will encompass education, practice and professional development based on different education documents which are partly existing and partly missing, In the EU this may be a precondition for the automatic recognition of our professionals. IFLA Europe will be the responsible partner for this work package.  IFLA Europe representatives that will be active in this project are Marina Cervera (AEP Spain) and Fritz Auweck (BAK Germany). Fritz Auweck will also peer review the results of the whole project. The project will last 24 months.
