Summer School: Managing Sustainable Forest LandscapesThis course examines forestry from an interdisciplinary and global perspective. The focus will be on ecosystem services that forests provide, and the students should therefore have at least a basic understanding of ecosystem functions. Advanced Master's or Doctoral degree students are warmly invited on this course as are young professionals in a field related to the topics covered. In addition, professionals already in the working life may want to take this course to update their skills. This course seeks to enhance our understanding of forest ecosystem services, not least as the future of global forest resources is a daily concern in international policy debate and processes.
