12, 13, 26 and 27 October 2021, 2-6 pm Eastern European Time

 Online workshop series with virtual field tours in Northern and Eastern Europe and North America 

This workshop series provides the opportunity to join virtual field tours in the Nordic and Baltic countries and in North America. Based on the tours and presentations by various experts, supply chain actors, and stakeholders, we discuss the opportunities and challenges to managing forests in a sustainable manner and documenting it to international markets for sustainable products. We explore various types of governance systems, and their usefulness and feasibility for different types of forest owners and actors in the forest-based supply chains. 

The workshop series also introduces you to forest carbon modelling to gain an improved understanding of the different approaches and the challenges related to quantifying forest carbon balances and climate change impacts of various forest management systems and wood uses.
