The International Conference on Landscape Architecture to Support City Sustainable Development is an annual event, providing the platform for scientists, landscape architects, civil engineers, urban planners and managers to discuss environmental, economic and social problems of sustainable urban development. This year the conference was organized for the sixth time and focused on the environmental consequences of urbanization in Europe – one of the most urbanized regions in the world. The conference was hosted by the RUDN University of Russia (Moscow, Russia) – the most international university in Eastern Europe.
