Join Future Forests’ excursion to Germany for an inspirational knowledge exchange about challenges and opportunities in forestry. What will happen when the weather becomes warmer, drier, wetter and more extreme? How can forestry and everyone working with forests contribute to resilient forests and societal benefits from forests?

During one week, we travel by bus through Germany with stops in different forested areas, to discuss climate adaptation and mitigation-related challenges and opportunities in forestry. We will zoom in on issues especially relevant for the German forestry context including water issues and close-to-nature forest management while making comparisons to the Swedish situation.

During the excursion, we will discuss the integration of different ecosystem functions and services and look at practical solutions for how to create nature conservation and recreation in densely populated areas with heavy tourism. The excursion will facilitate knowledge exchange between the excursion participants and between excursion participants and our hosts along the way.

Main excursion destination: Freiburg in Breisgau, Baden-Württemberg with stops in northern and central Germany on the way South/North.

Target groups:

  • professionals in the forest and forest related sectors including nature conservation and forest tourism
  • researchers
  • PhD students (a PhD course is linked to the excursion)
  • forest owners
  • anyone with an interest in forestry

Language: English

The excursion is organised by Future Forests in collaboration with skogsresor.se.
