Major international role for former president of Landscape Institute
Professor Kathryn Moore has been elected as the next president of IFLA (the International Federation for Landscape Architects).
Moore, who is Professor of Landscape Architecture at Birmingham City University, chairs the IFLA working group for a UNESCO International Landscape Convention. She was president of the Landscape Institute in 2004.
In her statement seeking election, Moore wrote, ‘Landscape architects increasingly need a geographic sensibility, a strong sense of social and ethical responsibility as well as knowledge of the spatial implications of governance, finance and transport, health and education’.
Her key priorities, working with the organisation’s executive, would be to ‘help the organisation play an important international leadership and consultative role, provide a global network of advice and support for members to draw upon, promote the profession, inspire its members and attain global recognition through its awards and competitions.’
