Some time ago IFSA informed about several possibilities for students to get involved at the Commonwealth Forestry Conference 2021. Now we want to share with you the opportunity to be part of the official IFSA digital delegation at the CFC.
The Commonwealth Forestry Conference is an international forum for foresters, and all those with an interest in the forestry sector to exchange knowledge and experience. It is organized by the Standing Committee on Commonwealth Forestry and occurs every 4 – 5 years. The Conference relates to general aspects of forest management and governance and has a focus on the changing priorities of the forestry sector.
There are different opportunities of engagement for participants, which involve but are not limited to:
Creating content for and managing the communication channels
Cover social media of single sessions, side activities, or the whole forum
Engage in daily or final delegation wrap session (e.g. presentation of experience)
Prepare a delegation report of the conference for the rest of the IFSA world
Even though the conference is a Commonwealth institution, of course, also IFSA members from outside of Commonwealth countries are welcome and encouraged to join and engage. The goal of the conference is to engage members of the Commonwealth as well as the general world forest community, regardless of their professional affiliation. The ambition is to provide a safe and inclusive space to market ideas, start and renew friendships among professionals and other stakeholders and initiate discussion, from a research, a business and from a governance point-of-view, on what the future forest sector might look like.
If you are interested in taking part in the conference and be part of the discussions, we would be thrilled to see you register and join the IFSA delegation as well. Registration is free of charge. Once you have been selected for the delegation, you will be sent a voucher code for free registration.
