Having considered many logistical issues, including the number of delegates that can be accommodated, exhibition space available and the cash-flow of the institute in terms of deposits needed to secure the venue, ILASA has decided to change the dates of its 2010 conference. The event will now take place on Thursday and Friday May 13 – 14 2010 at the Wanderers Club in Johannesburg (and no longer on May 6 – 7).
Delegate registrations for the 2010 conference are now open. An exciting programme with a theme of “landscape architecture... adding value” will focus on four sub-themes:
- Green building within the context of green cities
- Regenerative landscapes – brownfields development, reclamation and rehabilitation
- The role of landscape architecture in public precincts, squares and parks to facilitate densification and social cohesion
- Urban greening and ecological systems within cities.
