The IFLA is the international organisation representing landscape architects. It coordinates the activities of member associations on international issues. Each year the IFLA holds a World Congress and arranges various design competitions for students and professionals.
The NVTL represents the interests of Dutch landscape architects at the annual world congresses and promotes IFLA activities on its website, in its digital newsletter and through other channels of communication. Each year IFLA bestows the prestigious Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Award on a landscape architect whose work has had a unique and lasting impact on the profession and society.
