IFLA Europe proudly announces the launch of its Young Professionals Competition on the theme „Use of trees and vegetation in the design and construction of resilient urban areas”.The competition is open to entries from 15th June  2015. The deadline for submitting contributions is 1st September 2015. The results will be announced in September 2015.

Read more about the competition topic :

The brief of the competition is to produce a design based submission which describes the use of plants and vegetation, and in particular trees, in the creation of resilient urban areas. The use of the term resilient is used in the sense that the planting of vegetation and trees  forms part of the means by which urban areas may react to the changing climate and conditions of our planet. This may be in the form of helping to reduce temperatures, to assist in control of flooding whether planted in the urban area or the hinterland in order to be part of an attenuation or flood management, using suburban drainage systems or simply as a means to creating a healthier and more vibrant and human scale environment
