IUFRO Spotlight #42: Forest Education Changing to Reflect Times
Part of the reasoning behind that change is because solutions to current and future challenges call for holistic and cross-sectoral approaches. In order to strengthen multi-disciplinary research on forests and practices, a Joint Task Force has been established through a collaborative effort of IUFRO and the International Forestry Students' Association (IFSA).
The Forest Education Task Force seeks to bring together perspectives and knowledge from students, educators and other stakeholders; encourage international discussions on forest education and capacity building; identify, compile and communicate gaps and challenges in forest education – especially highlighting new fields of forest education; and to enhance forestry students' mobility and education opportunities.
