IUFRO Workshop and Last Plenary Session


On Sunday, the 21st of August, 2016, the fifth and last plenary session of the General Assembly of the IFSA took place.


Later on we enjoyed an inspiring workshop by Mike Wingfield, president of IUFRO. He hosted a discussion on the future of forestry.




Together we explored during this discussion what forestry will look like in the future, and how forestry education can best prepare students for the challenges ahead. The participants were also asked to work in small groups on the topic.


In the afternoon we enjoyed the landscape close to National Park Kalkalpen during a raft trip on the river Enns. This adventure was completed with traditional Austrian music and snacks.

Thanks to IUFRO for this insightful experience!
