Nigel Thorne will travel to Brussels to take part in the European Foundation for Landscape Architecture's (EFLA) executive council and general assembly on 20-22 November.
He has been nominated to stand as president but said his appointment would be dependant on how "good a light the Landscape Institute is seen in".
"It is about people from other member states deciding whether they want someone from the UK," he explained.
"It is a remarkable challenge and if I'm elected I want to carry out the task to the best of my ability."
The role would involve the promotion of landscape architecture across the EU member states.
