The bdla annual conference took place on 7 April 2017 at the Augustinian Monastery in Erfurt, where Martin Luther read his first mass on 2 May 1507.

In his report on the association's year 2016, bdla President Till Rehwaldt highlighted the bdla's activities on green infrastructure. The bdla campaign launched in 2014 experienced a professional highlight with the "Kick off Green Infrastructure" conference from 12 to 14 October 2016 in the Green Capital Essen. The bdla also made a significant contribution to defining the profession's position in the process of developing and formulating the White Paper "Green in the City" by the Federal Government.

This year, as in the years to come, the debate on the White Paper and the implementation of the measures by a newly elected federal government will form the programmatic focus in the association. As a result of the comprehensive discussion, the advisory board of the bdla adopted an Erfurt Declaration "Green Infrastructure in Town and Country - for Environmental Justice and Sustainable Development". In it, it is stated that green structures and landscape areas are increasingly burdened by urban densification and more diverse demands for use of open space and landscape.

"In addition to strengthening inner-city open spaces, targeted urban-rural development can counteract this pressure and strengthen social, ecological and cultural qualities by developing new linkages. The green infrastructure strategy in particular has great potential for this." Only by setting a fundamental structural and financial course in interdepartmental cooperation at federal, state and local level "will it be possible to translate the green infrastructure strategy into a noticeable improvement in the quality of open space".

The bdla President Till Rehwaldt, landscape architect bdla in Dresden, who has been in office since 2014, and the Vice Presidents Irene Burkhardt, landscape architect bdla in Munich, and Stephan Lenzen, landscape architect bdla in Bonn, were confirmed in their offices. New assessors in the executive committee are Gudrun Rentsch, landscape architect bdla in Kitzingen, and Franz Reschke, landscape architect bdla in Berlin. Markus Gnüchtel (spokesperson garden art garden culture), Jutta Sankowski (spokesperson public relations), Prof. Ulrike Böhm (spokesperson urban development open space planning) and Andrea Ziegenrücker (spokesperson competition) were also re-elected.
