LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS WITHOUT BORDERS

Our Mission
To mobilize the landscape architecture profession regarding the humanitarian services that landscape architects can provide to people and places around the world where they are non-existent or scarce. These altruistic services can include: helping re-plan and redesign areas that are recovering from natural disasters and political conflicts affecting not only cherished landscapes but human and non-human homes; giving general guidance to governments on how to optimally protect landscapes so as to prevent natural disasters; raise global awareness (through presentations and capacity-building workshops) about the various aspects of the profession; providing academic expertise to university students and curriculums; planning and designing projects such as refugee camps, children’s playgrounds in inner city areas, urban streets in marginalized areas, neighborhood parks in villages, National Parks and Reserves, ecotourism planning and ecolodges that help alleviate poverty.
