Working Group 'Landscape Planning'

Landscape planning, as a forward?looking action to enhance, restore or create landscapes, is a dynamic field of research and application. Practitioners and researchers around the world are active in contributing to the further development of landscape planning theory and practices. Many IALE conferences feature related presentations and symposia. What is missing, however, is a continuous forum for landscape planners within IALE to stay in contact, to share experiences, and to jointly move landscape planning forward.

The objective of the recently established IALE working group on landscape planning is to provide a forum for continuous debate and exchange of landscape planning practitioners and scientists concerning emerging challenges, topical issues as well as the further development of landscape planning theory and methods. To achieve its objective, the working group undertakes the following activities:

  • to set up an e-mailing list for communication,
  • to regularly organize symposia and workshops at IALE World or regional conferences,
  • to identify topical challenges, trends and development of landscape planning,
  • to engage in joint publications, and
  • to explore options for further collaboration in joint research projects.

The landscape planning working group was founded at the IALE World Congress 2015 in Portland, USA. All interested colleagues are warmly invited to participate - for more information and in case you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Christian Albert (albert(at)
