Webinar: What’s forest education up to in Africa and Europe?
May 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Are you studying forestry or a forest-related field? Or are you teaching at a university in one of these fields? Great! You might be interested to know that FAO published six regional assessment reports on forest education around the globe in 2021. Those reports reflect on the current status and needs of formal forest education at all levels. Please find the reports on the Global Forest Education Project’s webpage.
In the context of FOREST EUROPE’S webinar series “From the roots to the canopy” we cordially invite you to join our online webinar. With this joint action of IFSA, IUFRO and FOREST EUROPE, we want to enable a dialogue between Africa and Europe to share key findings of the reports, and also discuss the results.
At first, the main authors will present the respective regional reports and inform about the current status, needs and challenges of forest education. Then we jump directly to the discussion: two students and one early career scientist will discuss with the authors about differences in forest education in the two regions, what Europe can learn from Africa (and vice versa), and what needs to be done to enhance forest education.
This is followed by a direct interaction with the audience. You will have the chance to ask questions and learn why the reports are relevant for forestry students, educators and policy makers. We hope to see you there!
