IFLA Newsletter n° 84 - In search of sustainability (4th of October 2009)- Available online!
Whatever the approach in our articles and in the wealth of perspectives in presentations to be shown in Rio de Janeiro, we landscape architects have a duty to our clients, to the people who are affected by our designs and to biodiversity itself, to act as stewards of landscapes. Our duty is to conserve and enhance landscapes so that they function and endure. Certainly, we design for beauty, but that is not the end of it. We also design for sustenance, health, diversity and connectivity, and so that community rights in our landscapes are maintained.
