Future of Forest Work at IUFRO

The Future of Forest Work Community of Practice is relaunching

The 26th IUFRO World Congress is the global gathering of forest stakeholders, set to unfold in Stockholm, Sweden at the end of June 2024. We look forward to meeting with our colleagues to discover the latest research, innovations and applied science. The policymakers and experts from all over the world who are attending the event are committed to shaping a sustainable future for forests and society, and we hope that significant discussions to move these important initiatives forward will be a priority.

Our team will be presenting two topics:

Sustainable Wood for Thriving Cities and Forests: How cities can support thriving forests nearby and faraway through Conservation Timber

Join Scott on Thursday, June 27 for T2.22 “Perception – Awareness – Choice. How forest bioeconomy becomes a reality”. The session will take place from 8:30-10:30 AM (CEST), tentatively in Room 10.

The Future of Forest Work Community of Practice

At IUFRO we will also be announcing the relaunch of the Future of Forest Work Community of Practice Website. This important project is continuing to grow, and the enhanced site has a more detailed description of the methodology, includes community workshop highlights, and takes a look back at nearly a decade of connecting youth and communities. It also hosts a video and photo gallery of the 15 workshops and shares participant’s workshop impact and feedback. There are thousands of datasets collected as part of this initiative, and in the future this website will host more detailed research and will be a connecting place for communities, youth and project leaders.
