WORLD LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MONTH (WLAM)
April is World Landscape Architecture Month, a month-long celebration of landscape architecture and the design of public and private spaces. Similar to last year, each ASLA member will receive a wallet sized card to use on social media. All you have to do is take pictures with the card in the image and then share on social media using #WLAM2019. “This is Landscape Architecture” which opens the narrative potential to include design process photos, public workshops, construction photos, and other elements of our practice. This month is our opportunity to show the world what we do. The power to share that narrative is in the hands of every ASLA member and its just one social media post away! ASLA will showcase all of these efforts to create a national story that promotes the landscape architecture profession.
‘This Is Landscape Architecture’ Social Media Campaign
The idea: For landscape architects across the globe to take photos of their work and their design process, along with a wallet-sized card that reads “This Is Landscape Architecture,” and then share them on social media using #WLAM2019.
The goal: To celebrate the work and importance of our profession across the globe.
Our request: For all of our members to participate! This is a great way for us to show off our own landscape architecture work on a global scale. Find out more here: asla.org/wlam
The sharing begins on April 1 – let’s take advantage of this opportunity to shine!
DON’T HAVE SOCIAL MEDIA OR WOULD YOU LIKE THE CHAPTER TO POST FOR YOU?
No problem, that’s what we are here for! Just sent the photos you’d like us to post to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work with you to develop a narrative and post to the Chapter social media channels!
