Solidarity with Ukraine
The Federation of Swiss Landscape Architects (BSLA) strongly condemns the invasion of a sovereign country, Ukraine, by Russia and shares the solidarity declaration of IFLA:
The International Federation of Landscape Architects, IFLA, joins as a global community to show our solidarity to the people of Ukraine. Faced with unimaginable disruption and devastation to their cities and countryside, we join the call for peace and the immediate cessation of hostilities.
IFLA represents the global community of landscape architects with membership of national associations in 77 countries and all regions of the world. The destruction of cultural heritage, productive and natural landscapes, and disruption to the economic livelihood and cultural roots of Ukraine’s population is to be deplored.
IFLA was established in 1948 to represent the profession of landscape architects globally. Its mission is to advocate for safe, productive, inclusive and healthy environments. As a global organization we unequivocally call for an immediate end to this conflict.
