On June 10-11, 2016, over 700 landscape architects with a shared concern for the future were assembled by the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Inspired by LAF’s 1966  Declaration of Concern, we crafted a new vision for landscape architecture for the 21st century. This is our call to action.

Across borders and beyond walls, from city centers to the last wilderness, humanity’s common ground is the landscape itself. Food, water, oxygen – everything that sustains us comes from and returns to the landscape. What we do to our landscapes we ultimately do to ourselves. The profession charged with designing this common ground is landscape architecture.

After centuries of mistakenly believing we could exploit nature without consequence, we have now entered an age of extreme climate change marked by rising seas, resource depletion, desertification and unprecedented rates of species extinction. Set against the global phenomena of accelerating consumption, urbanization and inequity, these influences disproportionately affect the poor and will impact everyone, everywhere.

Simultaneously, there is profound hope for the future. As we begin to understand the true complexity and holistic nature of the earth system and as we begin to appreciate humanity’s role as integral to its stability and productivity, we can build a new identity for society as a constructive part of nature.

The urgent challenge before us is to redesign our communities in the context of their bioregional landscapes enabling them to adapt to climate change and mitigate its root causes. As designers versed in both environmental and cultural systems, landscape architects are uniquely positioned to bring related professions together into new alliances to address complex social and ecological problems. Landscape architects bring different and often competing interests together so as to give artistic physical form and integrated function to the ideals of equity, sustainability, resiliency and democracy.

As landscape architects we vow to create places that serve the higher purpose of social and ecological justice for all peoples and all species. We vow to create places that nourish our deepest needs for communion with the natural world and with one another. We vow to serve the health and well-being of all communities.

To fulfill these promises, we will work to strengthen and diversify our global capacity as a profession. We will work to cultivate a bold culture of inclusive leadership, advocacy and activism in our ranks. We will work to raise awareness of landscape architecture’s vital contribution. We will work to support research and champion new practices that result in design innovation and policy transformation.

We pledge our services. We seek commitment and action from those who share our concern.

    I am part of a community Garden in Glenwood Springs Colorado, there is a section of the land that is not suitable for raising crops and would be better utilized as a bird habitat, wild garden. The master gardener age 69 is wishing for someone to design and help implement a educational, creative, and project of beauty that tourist-our town is tourism economy-could enjoy, become educated, engaged and make a donation that would be used to maintain the garden as well as the vegetable garden that has locals with small plots for food and community grown food for seniors and those less fortunate.

    Landscape Architects need to work together more and in more collaborative environments. In many regions, our profession spends more time focused on who gets what project rather than finding ways to better influence design. In addition, our state and national conferences should involve more dialogue and less preaching about projects.

    My late husband, Joe Lalli, entered the profession when one had to explain that it was not just choosing plants ( or even planting them ). He would be so proud of this declaration as working across cultures and disciplines was what interested him the most. It was his dedication to the profession and its possibilities that
    caused us to set up the $20,000 Joe Lalli Memorial Scholarship for advanced study. LAF and its supporters have played no small part in the growth and adaptability of the profession!!!.

    Humanity is now the hope for humans who once were a planetary disease in the past...

    Rebecca Solnit writes about the ground of hope, "It’s important to say what hope is not: it is not the belief that everything was, is, or will be fine. The evidence is all around us of tremendous suffering and tremendous destruction.The hope I’m interested in is about broad perspectives with specific possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act...You could call it an account of complexities and uncertainties, with openings."

    This is what makes landscape architecture unique, powerful yet difficult.

    Few people, even professionals, recognize that land clearance is responsible for greenhouse gas emissions in quantities that rival fossil fuel burning. Perhaps the most effective single step landscape professionals could take would be, on every project and with every client, clear absolutely no more than truly needed. Close-to-source stormwater management techniques are well known, and also are a critical step we can take everywhere we work.

Significant progress has been made since the profession launched in 1899 here in the USA but there is so much more we have to offer to our built and natural environments. Collaboration and leadership at the highest levels of policy, planning and critical thinking awaits us all; onward landscape architects!

    I'm architect and I have been working in landscape for 2 years in my country, and just right now I'm learning my second language English and discovering a lot cultures in "EF" Manchester UK, so maybe in a little more time I would have improved mi English and knowed so many people, to can share ideas with you. Today I'm a person with a open mind totally, so then in July I'll looking for some volunteering, because I need more about know different kinds of cultures. If I can do something for you let me know please, is time to make a difference, but first we need to know people of each place..more psychology.

There are many ways to get involved - a neighborhood committee, a community planning group, a Design Review Board, Zoning Board or Planning Commission, or better yet, run for office! Get involved.

    As a call to action I would challenge all landscape architects to get involved in the community and think beyond our day jobs. As landscape architects, our training, job skills, knowledge and personal connections allow us to bring a holistic perspective to community issues. We should all be involved and be the leaders in community events, stakeholder groups, nonprofit organizations, city council, planning commission, parks and rec commission, school boards, PTA, chambers, environmental ngos, etc. The value of a landscape architect goes beyond being just a consultant, it’s our duty to share our skills.

    Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK said:

    Landscape Architecture should not be exclusive from urban and architectural design; it should be an amalgam of carefully curated thoughts, ideas, concepts and deliverable projects to enhance the day to day. Ecology and wildlife are not things to be reported and disregarded, as in the case of many projects they become a stumbling block rather than a design opportunity. Sensitive consideration of context, ecology, design, nature and people should allow for enhancements and augmentations of spaces rather than financially orientated developments, informed by a cross-disciplinary design ethos.

    As landscape architects and particularly those from North America we are very under represented and highly threatened landscapes and water systems in Africa, Southeast Asia and central/South America which will experience substantial impacts related it to climate change and the loss of arable land, Vegetation, Soil fertility and drinking water in the next generation. As a profession we must increasingly make a commitment to expand our knowledge and services to those vulnerable populations particularly in emerging economies. The opportunities are abundant. International donors and NGOs from Japan to Europe are frequently looking for expertise to assist in climate change adoption using methods that are particularly appropriate to our skills as landscape architects.

    I think this statement is a good start, but it's not enough. We need to be more specific when referring to social and environmental justice and those moments where they overlap (i.e. environmental racism). I believe the disciplines' lack of specificity in solving the enormous structural problems we face is what is holding us back. The fact that this industry has always been dominated by cis, white, heter-oriented men is the first problem we need to address as an industry. Creating more opportunities for the voices of the marginalized to be heard and considered is imperative to moving forward. The "architectures" alike tend to think they know what is best - we need to move from an 'either/or" mentality to an "this and that". My expertise in design practice is important, but not more important than listening to the needs, ideas and visions of the communities that my work will impact. My two cents :)

    I agree whole heartedly, however I often am concerned with the financial burden our landscape architecture can tend to put on communities as well. What we design is often very expensive for the sake of aesthetics. I only hope we can work to have financial sustainability be a central part of the conversation as well.

    I general, I agree with this initiative, however more than one profession is responsible for anthropocentric change in the landscape. The realm of the landscape architect is perceived in professional circles to be limited to the 'green' and in these realms we generally make a positive contribution. But because our scope is partitioned we can only have an impact in a limited area.

    The challenge we have is to convince our fellow professionals (clients, engineers, architects, urban designers et. al.) that our input need not supersede their work but rather inform their work to better protect and enhance ecological systems. As LA's, we need to be honest with ourselves, that we cannot design everything, but can be helpful in the design of most human interventions that are placed on/within the landscape.

In addition to living this ethic, we are responsible to share an understanding of stewardship through our work.

    “Consult the genius of the place in all;

    Or helps th' ambitious hill the heav'ns to scale,
    Or scoops in circling theatres the vale;
    Calls in the country, catches opening glades,
    Joins willing woods, and varies shades from shades,
    Now breaks, or now directs, th' intending lines;
    Paints as you plant, and, as you work, designs.”

    It is not good enough to plant Native Plants if they are used un-naturally. The movement begins by recreating nature where there are currently lawns and made landscapes intended to mimic an ideal of the American Dream circa 1950's.
    Since I graduated from The Ohio State University in 1982 so many concepts taught during the day have not stood the test of time; such as getting rid of all the rain water as soon as possible instead of harvesting it on site, use plants that are pest resistant instead of plants that support the local insects / butterflies / birds and a good landscape design is not good enough if it does not include a maintenance plan.

    It is inauguration day, Creating "a border" (or wall) is a call to action for landscape architects to uphold this declaration so that whatever is built is securely permeable to the wildlife of all sizes that traverse the 1000 mile project. The project might also pay tribute to the Colorado River, and call for the restoration of the Colorado River's flow into Mexico. LA plus Island contest? Might research of border islands and their interstitial space contribute to finding a solution pleasing to all, including the President?

    The declaration is fine as far as it goes, but it does not address the need to strike a balance between people and nature and to conserve both cultural and natural resources as we do so. Rather, it emphasizes design and redesign , to the exclusion of conservation. Suggested wording changes:

    “The urgent challenge before us is to redesign adaptably design our communities in the context of their bioregional and cultural landscapes to mitigate the effects of climate change on enabling them, while addressing to adapt to climate change and mitigate its root causes (You don’t mitigate its root causes; you mitigate its effects and minimize or eliminate its root causes). As designers versed in both environmental and cultural systems, landscape architects are uniquely positioned to bring related professions together into new alliances to address complex social, cultural and ecological problems. Landscape architects bring different and often competing interests together so as to give artistic physical form and integrated function to the ideals of equity, sustainability, resiliency and democracy.”

    I sign this declaration during a time in which I expect our upcoming administration to take steps to gut EPA regulations, alienate our Hispanic work force and to denigrate and diminish the value of once hallowed political institutions. A simplistic and reactive mindset is upon us - and promises to cheapen and erode our freedoms, our carefully considered responses to climate change - and to couch it in an inarticulate, reactive series of tweets. Conflicts of interest will abound; our partners around the world will be ever more wary of our world view and inexperienced and agenda driven managers will run key positions. Landscape architects are one of the last bulwarks, like true Journalists, to this upcoming storm. We would do well to look at our own resources and bully-pulpits, specifically the landscape contracting and design/build "trade" magazines that we read and support as potentially part of the problem. These magazines are read by many and represent an editorial world view that purports to 'represent' us, but is in fact a shill for lawn and landscape chemical interests. If we allow these advvertorial interests to "speak" for us through magazines and state landscape organizations without rebuke, we are not doing our jobs and we are misinforming the public. If we cannot support ANY chemical restrictions imposed by the EPA and scientific research - and do it wholeheartedly - we have no business calling ourselves Stewards of the Land.

    there are many resource balancing services that the landscape can perform in consort with the development at any scale ( air , water, waste water, food / organic waste, materials both renewable an none) the only problem is that the profession still works under old planning and design principles - we have rethought this process - we use an eco-Ecobalance methodology that is life cycle based planning for a spectrum of human life support as well as natures needs the procedure is based on - it incorporated a combination of industrial ecology, ZERI,permaculture and mapping for the suitability of each phase of the life cycle

    I do not see any methods - all I see is cool design and stabs in the dark

    As landscape architects, we must unite to not only sustain but save out planet Earth. Today's complexities need resilient, democratic action globally that landscape architects are poised to facilitate.
    This declaration is not just a continuum from fifty years past but a new beginning of collaboration of many to focus on the dire need.

    I sign this as a "related" professional in Civil/Ecological Engineering. Landscape Architects are indeed uniquely positioned to stitch together a narrative placing environmental performance--for all--at the center off the conversation. I encourage all to examine Seattle's Green Factor and DC's Green Area Ratio as a mechanism to bring this vision into the building permit review process at the earliest stages.

    We need to strengthen our ability to practice as our profession has weakened in recent years through the efforts other professions with stronger and larger membership. In CT we are left out of the lists of professionals allowed to design stormwater managment plans, grading plans, site plans, etc. In some municipalities the LA is only allowed to stamp planting plans. Our role on teams has become subordinate rather that equal and in many of the mulit disciplinary firms the Landscape Architects are just providing planting plans. These firms are becoming the norm and the LA firm is becoming obsolete in practice other than residential design (and even in that market we often cannot stamp grading or stomwater plans). We need to strengthen our presence in the national, regional and local markets as the experts in sustainable site design and planning. CTASLA is working hard in its advocacy for the profession but it is volunteer with limited resources.

    We need to project the land, air, water, plants, and animals at every scale -- from the declaration of new nationally protected lands to regional nature parks and refuges to trees on a street. They are all connected together, and connected to our cultures, public health, and economics. This must be taught in schools, starting with elementary schools, so that a group of aware, knowledgeable, and concerned citizens can emerge in every generation to protect and preserve that which is needed for us and for the planet to live and thrive.

AIA has a Diversity Council with dedicated staff including a Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Managing Director, Diversity & Emerging Professionals Engagement a Manager of Diversity and Inclusion.

    I'm signing based on principle and importance of the issues at hand BUT for more than the 20 years that I've been in LA as a student, professional, and academic LA has been using phrases like "uniquely qualified" and touting the professions "potential" for leadership. There are some great LAs and leaders among "us" but leadership that brings change must be about broadening the definition of "us". Let's be the most diverse/inclusive of the design professions! Let's champion perspectives beyond those of potential clients. Let's get over our/other perceptions of the profession. Let's take steps in that important direction. First, by being great stewards, holding tight to shared principles, and battling cheap/short-sighted/stupid choices when we see them.

We will work to support research and champion new practices that result in design innovation and policy transformation."

    I believe this is the most critical aspect of the declaration. Though implied I believe this "leadership and advocacy" must be carried into projects to the clients as well. Clients must understand this declaration reflects greatly to them as well and that is our responsibility to take the right steps, not the easy ones.

    Rooted in all of us and the core of this declaration is an innate sense of stewardship. This stewardship is not a unique phenomenon, but a connection to the world that goes beyond biological, physical, and even emotional. Either ideological or spiritual, all of us has a desire to improve our lot and to serve. This is true religion.

    The original signers of the Declaration of the Environment had meaningful relationships with politicians at the local and national levels. How can we build these? Can LAF partner with the NEA Design Arts- Mayor's Institute on City Design to develop an institutional relationship with our nation's mayors? Many of us have participated in these workshops, but it would be incredible to build a relationship that was structural and lasting. The American Architecture Foundation is one of their partners.

    Mary Margaret Jones is on their Advisory Council. Courtney Cook Spearman, a UVA Landscape Architecture alum, works for the NEA Design Arts. They might be able to help with introductions.

    In a Nov 02, 2016 @NYTimes OpEd piece, columnist @ThomasFriedman says:

    “The best jobs in the future are going to be what I call “STEMpathy jobs — jobs that blend STEM skills (science, technology, engineering, math) with human empathy. We don’t know what many of them will look like yet.”

    Perhaps they look a lot like Landscape Architecture, a profession that combines STEM, empathy and narrative to make great places and to care for the Earth. -Ken

    I concur with Eric Schmidt that the last sentence in the first paragraph needs to be revised. Here are two ideas and I am sure that others may improve upon these.

    Landscape architecture is one of many professions charged with co-designing landscapes in tandem with other organisms and natural processes.

    Landscape architecture is a vital partner -- with other professions, a wide range of organisms, and with natural processes -- in collaboratively designing the common ground we call landscape.

    Note to the 700 LA’s that were in the room. From an LA on an Island some 3,000 miles away.

    Your first paragraph requires a redrafting.

    Common ground that sustains us “food, water, oxygen – everything” is not the domain of LA’s alone.

    There are 3.2 million farmers on 2.1 million farms cultivating 950 million acres of soil in the USA alone. They sustain us. I do not think my relatives would agree. The hanging gardens of Babylon were not designed by LA’s, and neither is Archimedes, the inventor of said named screw, an LA. Yet these two artifacts had huge impacts on shaping our collective common ground. The list of famous non-LA’s who helped shape our common ground could go on and on.
    “The profession charged with designing this common ground is landscape architecture”, is a very self-centered and myopic statement.
    As a licensed; landscape architect in 1977, architect in 1986 and AICP planner in 1988, who works collaboratively with engineers, environmentalist, planners, ecologists, and our committed clients, I find it a bit egotistical to say LA’s alone are in charge of the common ground.
    My clients would fire me if I said this to them because their visions, values and money are the common denominator for all our professions. And all of the associated professionals, that our office collaborates with in our endeavors to improvement the public realm, would push back very hard on your very self-serving and closed minded statement.
    Please begin again with this declaration because the rest of the document is very powerful.

    Biodiversity has become a focal subject in recent years because it is essential for the function of ecosystems and critical in the maintenance of life on the planet. Biodiversity is important in all locations and across all scales of life. Value can be found in all scales and levels of biodiversity and this value can be described in economic terms. For example, biodiversity has provided a wide array of plants and microorganisms that are valuable to the medical field. One quarter of prescription drugs have an active ingredient that is composed of plants and 3,000 antibiotics are made from microorganisms. People also utilize the biodiversity on the planet by harvesting large amounts of food by hunting and fishing. The amount of food collected from the world's oceans is staggering. In 1988, 100 million tons of food were extracted from fisheries around the globe. Maintaining high levels of biodiversity will benefit the global economy as well as the ecosystems of the world.

    Economics are just one reason to preserve biodiversity. The environmental services provided through biodiversity are a little harder to put a price tag on. The varieties of ecosystems that exist each provide different types of services. Some of the basic benefits provided by various ecosystems are air and water filtration, stormwater drainage, and recreation opportunities. Forests can help improve air quality by reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and the same trees and plants in a forest can help to absorb water after a storm. Wetlands also provide a great way to control stormwater while also helping to filter out contaminants in the water at the same time.

    Proper management of ecosystem services is a great way to help people and their wallets! We need to stop taking the environment around us for granted. The world will easily survive without humans but humans will not survive without the world.
