Enabling Urban Community and Social Cohesion Through Neighborhoods
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.
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.
