Forest research projects are often carried out without the public knowing much about them. If you think that your research project deserves more attention than that, here is your chance: showcase your research work in the blog competition of the XXIV World Forestry Congress!
By submitting a blogpost you can help to significantly boost awareness, engagement and investments in forestry in general and on one of the six Congress sub-themes in particular:
* Forests for socioeconomic development and food security
* Building resilience with forests
* Integrating forests and other land uses
* Encouraging product innovation and sustainable trade
* Monitoring forests for better decision-making
* Improving governance by building capacity
The blog competition closes on July 31 midnight CET.
