Scales of Nature – From Urban Landscapes to Alpine Gardens is the theme of the 48th IFLA World Congress to be held in Zurich, Switzerland, from 27–29 June 2011.
At the forefront of the congress will be the debate on the general concept of landscape, which will encompass all facets of the environment and the interaction between man, nature and landscape. While the first day will be about urban landscapes, the second day of the congress deals with the peri-urban phenomenon in urban agglomerations and the third day concerns specific issues relating to rural land and its changes.
The Call for Abtracts is open until 30 November 2010. Accepted papers will be be presented and discussed in “parallel sessions” as well as published in the Congress’ Proceedings.
