[Open Call] Regional Meetings OC 2022
Dear IFSA World!
Would you like to host your region’s next Regional Meeting? A new opportunity is here: you can now apply to become the 2022 host and Organizing Committee (OC) of your respective Regional Meeting!
With the Online Regional Meetings just a few weeks away, we are looking for some interested LCs that would like to become the hosting country of next year’s Regional Meeting.
Regional Meetings (RMs) are one of the most iconic IFSA official events. Their main importance relies on strengthening the link between students from the same geographic area and to promote the development of new projects at a regional scale. These events are one of the best opportunities for IFSA members to get to know each other and share different perspectives about forestry education while learning about the history, culture and forestry practices of the hosting country.
Be an IFSA Ordinary Member at the time of application.
How to apply:
You must provide the following documents.
- A Presentation, Google Slides (recommended) or PowerPoint, about your RM proposal.
- [Optional]: A short video (5-minute max.) presenting your RM proposal.
Some important points your presentation should answer:
- Rough Agenda

- What will be the main activities? (includes excursions, visit to companies, fun activities, etc)
- Draft a possible route/places to visit.
