For a reduced ticket price, AILA student members and graduate members (years 1 to 3) from across Australia are invited to participate in more informal discussions with conference speakers. Run in conjunction with AILA Fresh Victoria and the student organisations of SLAB (RMIT University) and SOLA (University of Melbourne), this program will be driven by the concerns and questions of a next generation of landscape architects. This event will be held in a space close to Federation Square and is limited to 100 tickets.

New Gen event registrations are purchased separately to the main festival passes.  Your ticket includes event on the Friday including a light lunch and a New Gen ticket to guarantee your attendance to the Welcome Party of the Main Festival.  Register now by selecting the New Gen option on the book now page.  If the pricing option isn't available to you, please contact [email protected] as it means you're not a  student member on our system.  We can help you with this.
