Like many good stories, this one is about two strong women who set their minds to something extraordinary: a world congress of landscape architecture on two continents - in Kenya and Sweden - at the same time.
Ruth Wanjiku from Nairobi and Pia Jonsson from Stockholm made it possible. Over 80 nations met from September 28 to 30, 2023, to discuss the current state of landscape architecture across continents.

Outdoor sports can be so diverse. Outdoor sports facilities, as well as public spaces used for sports and exercise, allow for a variety of forms of exercise and sports. As diverse as the facilities are, the infrastructure needed to support them faces similar challenges in planning, construction, and operation. Sustainability and climate adaptation are of great importance in planning. But design measures that take into account the functional quality of sports also require creativity and innovation. This year's IAKS Germany Outdoor Specialist Seminar will present best practice examples and findings from research, and discuss with participants how to work together to design the sports facilities of the future.
bdla members receive the same conditions as members of the IAKS.

While measures to protect soil are largely regulated in landscape planning and are increasingly being applied, the handling of soil as a resource in the urban context is subject to major challenges within open space planning. From the point of view of sustainability, the storage, processing and reuse of excavated soils should actually take precedence over disposal, assuming a careful use of vacant soil areas. However, sustainable soil management often fails due to the availability of storage areas, despite many efforts on the part of clients and planners.

It contributes significantly to buffering the current consequences of climate change and increasing density through future-oriented solutions. In this context, the management of rainwater is key to the transformation of urban surfaces for the preservation of the natural water balance, flood protection and the reduction of heat stress.
