Celebrating World Landscape Architecture Month

April is World Landscape Architecture Month (started by ASLA). Celebrating landscape architecture for a month allows everyone to advocate for and showcase the diverse range of work (design, management, policy, education, research, etc.) that landscape architects undertake daily.

There are many ways that you can celebrate World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM):

  • Use the ASLA prompt list to post an image or video or share an article on social media (see below).
  • Hold an open house at your firm or university and invite allied professionals, government, and surrounding businesses to show what landscape architects do.
  • Visit a local school or university and have a workshop or presentation on what landscape architects do.
  • Send an email to your government official about the importance and role of landscape architecture in cities and addressing issues such as climate change.
  • Volunteer at your professional landscape association to assist with organising events or advocacy during April.
  • Submit an article to your local newspaper or blog about how landscape architects could help with a key issue in your city or area
  • Organise an event and invite allied professionals, non-profits, and government to discuss global and local issues and how to partner together to address them
  • Hashtag your images on social media with #WLAM2024 and #landscapearchitecture

World Landscape Architecture Month (#WLAM2024) is a great time to celebrate the profession, connect with others, and provide information to the public, allied professionals, governments, and others about how landscape architects assist with improving lives and creating places within your cities and communities.

Feel free to submit your project or article to World Landscape Architecture for publication and also remember tag us in social media posts.
