EFLA Congress 2012

Review of a challenging EFLA congress dedicated to the green infrastructure

 

The EFLA regional congress named ‘Green infrastructure, from global to local’ took place between Saint Petersburg (Russia) and Stockholm (Sweden), Uppsala (Sweden) and Helsinki (Finland) between the 11 and 15th of June after the General EFLA Assembly. From the beginning the organizers’ aim was clear : introducing a long-term infrastructure vision, building cooperation with numerous events, presenting interesting contributions and strengthening the EFLA network.

IFLA Europe General Assembly 2013 takes place in Berlin!


You may not have considered being part of the core activities of the IFLA Europe GA or the BDLA 100 year celebrations but we would like to offer you an additional opportunity to benefit from the magnificent landscape diversity of the host city!

Within the framework of the GA and BDLA celebratory events in Berlin during the weekend of the 21/22 September, you are cordially invited to participate in a Berlin ‘open-space and workshop tour’.

Organised by the IFLA Europe Communications Group and landscape architects living and working in Berlin, our goal is to show you the best and most diverse of Berlin on Sunday 22nd September from 10:00 am till 2:00 pm (open-ended afternoon ;) .

In 7 steps and 7 stops we will discover together and critically discuss how the story of landscapes and city planning are deeply connected. At every stop we will introduce you to the context and open the discussion for extensive debate.

Listed below are the ‘alternative’ tour details, please ask if you need more information:

Landscape Berlin – a success story? – How the city deals with its past, and strives to become the alternative green capital

1.) Regierungsviertel: The new face of the re-united Germany – a new definition of political open-space?
2.) Tiergarten versus Jewish Memorial: Impacts of World War II
3.) Potsdamer Platz: First urban transformation project of the re-unified Berlin
4.) Gleisdreieck: postindustrial area and nature in the town
5.) Moritzplatz urban gardening or ‘guerilla’ gardening: Bottom-up and community initiatives in landscape 

6.) Between Jannowitzbrücke and Ostbahnhof: Inhabitants fight for their (green) spots next to the former Berlin wall 

7.) Tempelhofer Feld: The huge open space site of the former airport in the middle of Berlin

We also highly recommend you attend the ‘Pecha Kucha’ event on Saturday  afternoon between 4.00 and 6.30 pm (where space allows). Member associations will present their best professional practice and most pressing LA concerns in short, sharp, intense format. An event not to be missed!

YOU are the future of our profession! We want you to discuss with us the current concerns and opportunities for landscape architecture during this tour. You are very welcome to join us! Please send a brief confirmation  of your attendance (before 20 September) to: laure.aubert@gmail.com 

NO Participation fee: but please bring your AB zone public transport ticket and picnic (as well as an umbrella, we can arrange the interesting content, but unfortunately not the weather!)

Meeting point: Sunday 22nd 10:00 am at Washingtonplatz (South Entrance of Hauptbahnhof)

- Floriade : the World Horticultural Expo held every 10 years in Holland begins in April

http://www.floriade.com/floriade-2012

The central theme of Floriade 2012, ‘Be part of the theatre in nature, get closer to the quality of life’, has been translated into five core sub-themes, which will be portrayed via five themed zones on the park.  The five core sub-themes at Floriade will cover the different aspects of the relationship between the consumer and the horticultural sector.

  • ‘Green Engine’ portrays horticulture as the green engine of the economy.
  •  ‘Education & Innovation’ relate the story of horticulture over the years while exploring the future of the sector at the same time.
  • For ‘Environment’ the key element is the importance of greenery at home, on the streets and in the working environment.
  • ‘Relax & Heal’ focuses on health, movement (physical wellbeing), food and enjoying the true flavour of products.
  • The World Show Stage will host events which show how international art, culture and entertainment inspire the horticultural sector and vice versa.

Floriade is a World Horticultural Expo that links innovation and sustainability. 

Floriade is intended to send out a signal about sustainability in society and will create an ideal image in the park of what can be achieved by thinking and acting with sustainability in mind.
