We are reaching out today to share with you some of the exciting new online programs we’ve recently launched here at the Faculty of Forestry as we ramp up for another recruitment cycle.
Our 4 new online micro-certificate programs<https://forestry.ubc.ca/programs/certificate/> offer a unique and accessible opportunity to advance and gain new skills in key, fast-growing fields. This is a great opportunity to engage in industry-aligned teaching, and highlights some of the amazing work that continues to be done here at the faculty. These 4 micro-certificate programs include the following:
Climate Vulnerability and Adaptation (CVA)<https://forestry.ubc.ca/programs/certificate/climate-micro-certificate/> provides forest professionals with an understanding of climate science, vulnerability assessments, adaptation development, and how it is applied to management and business case adaptation.
Co-Management of Natural Resources (CNR)<https://forestry.ubc.ca/programs/certificate/co-management-natural-resource…> explores how to advance co-management initiatives, institutional and relational change, and intercultural understanding at the nexus of Indigenous and Western Knowledge systems.
Forest Carbon Management (FCM)<https://forestry.ubc.ca/programs/certificate/forest-carbon-management/> centres on forest carbon accounting, data analysis, and natural resource management to excel in forest carbon projects and associated markets around the world.
Climate Action and Community Engagement (CACE)<https://forestry.ubc.ca/programs/certificate/climate-action-community-engag…> teaches students to engage and train local climate champions to build stronger and more resilient cities in the face of climate change extremes.
While all programs are listed to be 8-weeks long, we also offer flexibility to be completed at your convenience, with the option to spread out courses over a span of 2 years. As UBC Forestry continues to address pressing issues related to justice, climate change and sustainable forest management, we are thrilled to be able to offer this online opportunity to learn, reflect and grow with students from all backgrounds and professions.
Please feel free to circulate with anyone who might be interested in applying to our next cohort, and of course, reach out to me if you have any questions.
