Tue, May 25, 2021 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM See description. This event is a co-creation of the forestry faculties of the University of Helsinki, University of British Columbia, and Oregon State University. Its goal is to stimulate conversation around innovative ideas and build connection during this pandemic period. We welcome our global colleagues to join us as we explore these complex questions in a discussion with global experts from four continents whose expertise spans technology, business, governance, and conservation.
Despite centuries of developments and improvements in forest management, forest products, forest conservation, forest governance, and natural resources management, the state of our climate and health of our global ecosystems continue to diminish. At the same time, new thinking on future disruptions open up the possibility of genuinely sustainable futures. Can this thinking be applied in the field of forestry and the conservation of our natural resources? How do we harness the potential of both local communities and global marketplaces to bring forward game-changing solutions? We explore these complex questions in a discussion with global experts from four continents whose expertise spans technology, business, governance, and conservation. Please join us for a dynamic, online discussion.
