The Slovene Association of Landscape Architects was established in 1992 as an association of experts in the field of landscape architecture and spatial management. Its mission is to promote the landscape architecture profession in Slovenia, to search for spatial solutions in cooperation with various public entities, and to educate on the issues of environmental protection.

The association stimulates both cooperation with other professions in solving spatial and environmental problems and international networking. It is a member of the international Federation of Landscape Architects and the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools (ECLAS), and is actively cooperating with related associations, also with the Chamber of Architecture and Spatial Planning of Slovenia (ZAPS). The association has played a significant role in the processes of adopting spatial, building, environmental, and other sectoral legislation.


Besides its publishing activities and successful participation in many competitions, the association organises lectures, exhibitions of the work of its members, and panel discussions.

Month of Landscape Architecture

The annual Month of Landscape Architecture that takes place in April has become an important event offering lectures, guided tours, and children's workshops, thus educating on the environmental, social, and economic factors of spatial planning, landscape planning, and landscape design.

International cooperation

Together with the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Ljubljana, the Slovene Association of Landscape Architects has organised several conferences, e.g. the Landscape Planning in the Era of Globalisation in Portorož in 2002, and Public open space in Ljubljana in 2008.

In 2016 when Ljubljana took over a European Green Capital title, the Green Infrastructure, New Challenges for Urban Landscape Planning international conference took place at the Ljubljana Castle. One of the partners was also TURAS, the EU funded project ‘Transitioning towards Urban Resilience and Sustainability’.
