IUFRO World Day - Digital Forest Science Forum 2021
online; 28-29 September 2021

Large physical meetings are still not possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is also why the IUFRO Regional Congress in Russia scheduled for this September had to be postponed to 2022.

To fill this gap and cater for the need of strengthening networking and communication in IUFRO, a worldwide digital IUFRO event shall be organized at the end of September 2021.

The overall objective is to showcase the diversity of the IUFRO Network, including IUFRO Units and IUFRO Member Organizations, to facilitate networking, and to enhance communication and outreach.

As IUFRO aims to enable the greatest possible range of participants worldwide to follow the live sessions, we strongly recommend holding these sessions in English.

We accept static content from IUFRO Units and Member Organizations in other languages than English - preferably French, German and Spanish – but recommend English for the above reason.

To enable participants from all over the world to take part in their own time zones, the event will be structured into three major time zone groups spreading over two days.
