THEMATIC SESSIONS & SYMPOSIA
From Cities to Landscape: Design for Health and Biodiversity
The Organizations Urban Biodiversity and Design (URBIO) and the International Federation of Landscape Architects, Americas Region (IFLA-Americas) will hold a joint convention 25-27 October 2016, in Panama City, Panama. The meeting, at which we expect attendance of approximate 500 from around the world, will be fully co-planned and co-produced, uniting URBIO’s scientists and practitioners with IFLA’s landscape architects and designers.
The congress’ theme—From Cities to Landscape: Design for Health and Biodiversity—reflects the global need to reconceive how we build communities that benefit both people and the environment. As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, we cannot repeat the mistakes of past. Rather, we require a new paradigm that integrates social and environmental needs, that uses existing and fresh knowledge, mixing sectors and disciplines, to design human settlements in concert with nature.
