Plans for ILASA 2018

Entering 2018 the Institute for Landscape Architecture in South Africa (ILASA), founded in 1962, will build on its fifty five year legacy. Following its mandate to promote the profession and its social responsibility to transform the profession, ILASA will continue and expand on existing programmes. ILASA will explore opportunities for dialogue with government to broaden the awareness of the crucial role of landscape planning and design for the long term well-being of individuals and communities.
ILASA will continue to support SACLAP and the CBE on transformation strategies and with the DPW Schools programme; always pressing for bursaries for landscape architecture students. With the goal of transforming the profession in mind, ILASA will explore opportunities to support aspirant students of landscape architecture who experience financial constraints.
A number of events are planned for 2018. The principal event being the 2018 ILASA Conference planned for August. Regional events are planned for KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape and Gauteng.
The KZN branch will continue building on professional coherence and interactive excursions through field experiences. KZN welcomes the involvement of other professionals and interested parties.
The Gauteng branch has an event planned for each month in 2018 including; a Public Art site walk, two presentation of Gauteng merit award winning projects, and session on the Water Crisis. There are plans for two ILASA/PIA/UDISA collaboration events, a Mandela Day activity, a session on Design for Social Impact, a possible thesis presentation by University of Pretoria students and finally a Year End function in November.
The Cape branch promotes cross-pollination with other professions with quarterly ILASA@CIfA talks and collaboration on talks and events with the academic institutions of UCT and CPUT. As opportunities arise the Cape branch arranges or participates in events and trades talks of related green industry which focus on trade information and training.
ILASA looks forward to an exciting year as a member of the broader green industry and to working together without peers and industry clients to build a healthier green country.
