The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) champions quality design for public open spaces, stronger communities and greater environmental stewardship.
Our work aims to assist federal government agencies by promoting policy solutions to create better design, planning and management outcomes for the natural and built environment.
This work includes responses and submissions to discussion papers, draft legislation and parliamentary inquiries.
AILA hosted the November 2018 Parliamentary Friendship Group for Better Cities and called for the federal government to develop a National Green Infrastructure Strategy.
