We wish to draw your attention to an event taking place next month in Tullamore, Ireland.  It is a one-day conference organised by the Irish Landscape Institute in partnership with the International Federation of Landscape Architecture (IFLA Europe), World Urban Parks Europe Region and Entente Florale Europe.  These three international organisations have through Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs), signed in 2017, recognised that they share many common values and objectives and agreed to cooperate on various initiatives such as information sharing. 

The proposed one-day conference is therefore an action in line with the spirit of the MOUs and is planned to coincide with the Entente Florale Awards presentation in Tullamore on the 22nd September 2018. There is also a technical tour programme for the 21st September

The following are attached:

  • Details of a one-day conference on ‘Greening the Urban Environment’ on Thursday the 20th September.
