Forest education is crucial to sustainable forest management and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and other forest-related goals at local, national, and global scales. Forest education can be a solution to many global challenges such as deforestation and forest degradation; protection and restoration of ecosystems, nutrition and well-being, conservation of biodiversity and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
The International Conference on Forest Education will celebrate the culmination of over a year-long effort to collect and synthesise information on the status and needs of forest education and training globally, and to raise awareness of the contributions that robust forest education and knowledge systems play in the achievement of multiple forest goals and forests’ contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will be invited to help shape the drafting of a global Call to Action on forest education to be endorsed at the Conference.
