Europa Nostra receives IFLA Europe Award 2017

The IFLA Europe Award 2017 was presented to Europa Nostra during the IFLA Europe General Assembly, which took place in Bucharest, Romania, on 1-4 June 2017. John Sell, Executive-Vice President of Europa Nostra, received the Award on behalf of the organisation from Tony Williams, President of IFLA Europe. By attributing the IFLA Europe Award 2017 to Europa Nostra, IFLA Europe recognises the work that Europa Nostra is doing in establishing a European strategy for cultural heritage and to the mainstreaming of cultural heritage in EU policies and actions, thus making cultural heritage a European political priority as illustrated by the successful lobby for the European Year of Cultural Heritage in 2018.

The International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA)  Europe is a not-for-profit organisation that supports and promotes the profession of landscape architecture across all countries of the European Union, the European Economic Community and the Council of Europe, recognising excellence in educational courses and promoting best practice policies in all member countries. The IFLA Europe Award honours the work of exceptional people and organisations who believe that IFLA’s way of perceiving and understanding the world – derived from the profession of landscape architects – could contribute to its development.
