AILA’s Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan
As built environment professionals who engage with land, places, cultures, history, people, natural systems and built context, landscape architects seek to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. The development of AILA’s RAP allows us to better advocate for a ‘Connection to Country’ approach to landscape planning, design, and management on all our projects, in varying contexts and across many scales.
Endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, AILA’s Reflect RAP will facilitate the development of a deeper level of respect in our members and staff for Traditional Custodians and their relationship with the landscape. The Reflect RAP focuses on 15 actions in the key areas of Relationships, Respect, Opportunities and Governance, and will be implemented over the next 12 months through state chapter led events and the ongoing sharing of information.
