HORTIS introduction

The people in charge of natural public spaces and gardens in the French cities

HORTIS, is the association of the people in charge of public spaces in cities, both natural and urban. It gathers all the professionals of green spaces and landscapes involved in the French cities.

Included in more than 400 municipalities, the 600 members of our association are in charge of administrating, developing and protecting the plant heritage and its environment for the wellbeing of the population. This mission enrols the respect, the promotion of biodiversity and the implementation of the environments’ charter as defined in our constitution for the promotion of a sustainable development.

Being a recognized as a main partner of the public authorities, we develop common positions with landscape architects,  contractors (and their national association UNEP) and the plant suppliers ( national association : FNPHP) in order to join our forces to better defend and promote the values of our profession.

Finally, our association is a place for exchange and professional sharing, thanks to its numerous events (regional meetings, congresses…), in a friendly corporate atmosphere.

Paysalia is one of the best event in France about Landscape and Horticulture. It is a real opportunity to meet all the different actors of this profession. Hortis is totally engaged and supports taking part to the conferences, lectures, exhibitions and technical visits. Paysalia is the place to be next December!
