Annual Conference of the Yale International Society of Tropical Foresters - Attending to Complexity in Tropical Forest Landscapes

Canadian Forestry Events - Mon, 2017-11-13 22:45
The Yale Chapter of the International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF) is hosting their 24th Annual Conference titled ?Attending to Socio-ecological Complexity in Tropical Forest Landscapes?, which will take place February 1-3, 2018, at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (New Haven, CT, USA). ISTF 2018 will delve in the complexity of tropical forest landscapes shaped by interacting ecological, social, and multi-dimensional processes. Complexity includes the dynamic ecologies, socio-political regimes, and diverse stakeholder perspectives that converge within any given tropical forest locale. The conference will bring together practitioners, academics, and forest users to explore the thought, experiences, and methods used for attending to the complexity of tropical forest landscapes. Through speakers, discussion groups, and workshops, we will investigate three aspects of complexity: ecological complexity, socio-political complexity, and the complexity of scale.

Looking ahead to a circular European bioeconomy

Canadian Forestry Events - Mon, 2017-10-16 07:53
As the EU is just about to finish its review of the current Bioeocnomy Strategy and decide on updating it in 2018, this ThinkForest seminar will provide insights why it is important to merge the bioeconomy and circular economy concepts, and what are the priority issues for a new circular bioeocnomy strategy. In the seminar, EFI will publish a new strategic report on ?Leading the way to a European circular bioeconomy strategy?. We will be discussing the questions of: Why do we need a European circular economy strategy? What should its main ingredients be? What is the outlook for a sustainable European forest bioeconomy? What bioeconomy gaps do we still need to fill Our speakers include John Bell, Director of Bioeconomy, DG Research and Innovation, European Commission Cecil Konijnendijk van den Bosch, Professor, University of British Columbia Morning se Cecil Konijnendijk van den Bosch, Professor, University of British Columbia Georg Winkel, Head EFI Resilience Programme The event has two sessions: morning session at 9:30?12:00 focuses on A new strategy for a circular European bioeconomy and the afternoon session at 13:00-16:30 on the Outlook for a circular European bioeconomy.
