WASHINGTON, March 17, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Landscape architects are the people responsible for designing the parks, plazas, bike trails and other green spaces that make the outdoors fun, healthy, and sustainable. If you had to pick a favorite designed green space to photograph, which would you pick? That's the question asked by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) as it launches World Landscape Architecture Month in April.

Celebrate World Landscape Architecture Month with ASLA #WLAM2015

ASLA is unveiling the event—formerly National Landscape Architecture Month—in collaboration with the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA). Participants will celebrate landscape architecture by engaging their communities through the #WLAM2015 social media campaign. ASLA's chapters will also introduce the profession to schools and connect with IFLA member organizations in other countries via Skype and social media.

"We're excited to celebrate landscape architecture on a global level," said Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, executive vice president and CEO of ASLA. "We look forward to working with IFLA member organizations around the world and helping to develop the next generation of landscape architects."

"At a time when the globe faces major challenges caused by industrialization, urbanization, climate changes and the depletion of natural resources, World Landscape Architecture Month shines a light on our progressive profession," said Professor Kathryn Moore, IFLA president. "We are pleased that international collaboration such as this will illuminate the solutions landscape architecture offers."
