AILA’s Advocacy Strategic Objective

The role of Landscape Architecture is understood and respected by all levels of government.

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) champions quality design for public open spaces, stronger communities, and the role of the built landscape to contribute towards greater environmental stewardship.

AILA’s role is to anticipate and develop a leading position on issues of concern in Landscape Architecture. Our advocacy and research work aims to assist, inform and influence government agencies and allied professions to ensure landscape architects play a principal role in the design, planning and management of the natural and built environment.

Our advocacy work is guided by key themes we believe are critical to healthy communities and built and natural environments. Our goal is to ensure these areas gain and retain a position of primary focus for policy makers, agencies, allied professions, and the greater community: 

Healthy Communities

We advocate for the key role that parks and open space play in community, physical and mental health, and wellbeing.

Urban Green Infrastructure

We advocate for connected public spaces – a green space network – to provide improve social, economic and environmental outcomes for the nation.

Liveable Cities

We advocate for the key role public space has in connection, identity, wellbeing and liveability – especially in our increasingly dense and globalised cities
