Cia Flannery, AILA RLA
Cia Flannery the owner of company Cia Landscapes and Colour has seen the profession evolve in her 30 years as an RLA, to one where AILA's advocacy work in key and current topics have allowed it to gain momentum and a valued voice.
As current AILA ACT President, National Committee Member for Climate Positive Design Advocacy, design review panel member and design consultant to many key projects within ACT and NSW, Cia is privy to inspiring discussions, with industry, government, stakeholder groups and peers. This awareness and connection have further enhanced to her the need for Landscape Architects to lead policy and governance discussions on all matters relating to urban planning, climate, and environment.
Cia feels that only then will we achieve liveable cities and create balance between science and design and between built and living environs. She would like to value add to our position on all layers of advocacy, to the urgency of climate positive design, and further collaborate with government and related industry to grow and address AILA advocacy work.
