What is ELASA?
ELASA is European Landscape Architecture Student Association which promotes cooperation, exchange and mobility of the students within the association and also gives support for developing landscaping ideas and concepts across Europe. Next year, Croatia will become a host country for the first time and will be hosting a one-week ELASA meeting welcoming students from more than 10 countries around Europe. The association itself has around 1000 members and operates in a close connection with the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools (ECLAS). Each year an annual meeting (summer) and a smaller mini-meeting (spring) are arranged. Every meeting is organised in a different country by landscape architecture students of a university from that country. After the spring meeting, we are organising an annual meeting in France.
ELASA shapes landscape architecture students from all over Europe. Each country is represented by a country representative. Led by a Representative in meetings of the European and global professional and educational landscape architecture organizations like IFLA (International Federation of Landscape Architects), EFLA (European Federation of Landscape Architecture) and ECLAS (European Counsel of Landscape Architecture Schools).
These meetings are really important for our association because this is one of the main ways of keeping communication, sharing information and planning the next meetings. For this reason, a big welcome and thank you for being part of this team.
