Former Landscape Institute president could become head of European Foundation for Landscape Architecture

Former Landscape Institute president Nigel Thorne has been nominated to stand as the president of the European Foundation for Landscape Architecture this year.

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.
