Call for Abstracts – 2024 IFLA World Congress


Earth is experiencing an unprecedented rate of change. We are all living with ‘Code Red’. The scaleless and boundless nature of environmental crises creates an irreversible degradation in terrestrial, atmospheric, and aquatic environments that harm all living and their habitats. A considerable amount of the world’s population is affected daily by climate change and severe disasters, facing livelihood destruction, land-use change, habitat encroachment, extinction of species, and wildlife crime posing a significant threat to the future of the Earth and all living.

Herein, the 2024 IFLA 60th World Congress calls for humankind to take urgent action to prevent the worst impacts of environmental crises. Acknowledging human responsibility, the congress invites policymakers, professionals, scientists, and individuals on stage to establish discourse and course for the Earth’s future.

Addressing landscape architecture as a professional and academic practice that is deeply and firmly rooted in built environments’ relationship to nature, we intend to foreground the mediatory/mediating and catalytic role of Landscape Architecture and invite our esteemed scholars, researchers, educators, and practitioners to join this pivotal world conference.

The three-day congress intends to discuss anthropogenic impacts on the Earth system and establish scenarios by forming an action-oriented interaction ground rather than only (re)pointing out the problems.

The IFLA World Congress 2024 seek submissions within three tracks:

– Scientific or practice abstracts

– Design projects

– Open – If you would like to submit other material that does not fit in to the other categories

* The deadline for submitting is 15 January 2024 at 23.59 hours (GMT).
** Academicians, researchers, practitioners and postgraduate students from relevant fields are welcome to submit

    Considering our world is burning- it seems incredibly irresponsible to do an in-person global conference where 1000’s of people will be flying to Istanbul. While this is ‘business as usual’- we are hypocrites to fly across the earth to talk about solutions to climate change! Please change this conference to a digital one and we would consider putting in a paper!
    Thank you
