Members and partnerships
IFSA’s members are generally local associations of forestry students, called Local Committees (LCs), but can also be individuals persons (students or not).
IFSA achieves its goals by organizing extracurricular activities which promote an exchange of experiences and information between students. Those activities take place in International Forestry Students’ Symposiums (IFSS), regional meetings, seminars, several working groups called commissions, publications, etc.
IFSA also maintains excellent partnerships with international forest related organizations such as IUFRO, CIFOR, UNFFF, FAO, EFI, as well as many international students’ associations. Read more about our partners
