We would like to invite you again to join the upcoming GreenRisk4ALPs Mountain Forest Conference (https://cmi.eventsair.com/greenrisk4alps/), which will be held online on June 28 and 29, 2021.
The conference is promoting risk-based protective forest management as part of an integral and ecosystem-based natural hazard risk management in the Alpine Space. We will share new insights and developed decision support tools and discuss with representatives from organizations and networks such as the Alpine Convention, EUSALP, GLOMOS, IUCN, IUFRO, PLANALP, and the Interreg Alpine Space program.
This virtual conference will be held under the auspices of the IUFRO Division 8.03.00 - Natural Hazards and Risk Management, and the IUFRO Unit 8.03.02 - Snow and Avalanches, and is free of charge.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you online!

Subject: Task Force Webinar Series
Aloha, please share this widely! The Task Force on Nontimber Forest Products and the Bioeconomy are starting a series of presentation. This intended to let people know.
Please join us for a new webinar series<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.srs.f…>! The IUFRO Task Force "Unlocking the Bioeconomy and Nontimber Forest Products" with partners is cohosting a series of presentations to explore how NTFP are integrated into a bioeconomy. A bioeconomy can reduce environmental impacts of economic growth through science-based management that promotes sustainable production. In this series, experts from around the world will share research on nontimber forest products within a bioeconomy concept.
The first webinar will be Tuesday, August 31, 7:30-8:30 a.m. ET. Register<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fus02web.z…> for the webinar. The attached flyer provides more information on this month's speaker.
The series will feature monthly webinars over the next year, leading up to the UN FAO XV World Forestry Congress in May 2022. "Building a Green Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests" is the theme and the Congress will be held in South Korea.

I hope you and your family are fine even in the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Actually, in Japan, the situation is very uncertain, especially in Tokyo
As for the captioned matter, it was decided that the ACID RAIN 2020
conference would be postponed to late 2021 or early 2022. Although the
actual new date is still under discussion, we have just updated HP to
inform potential participants of the current situation.
The name of the conference "ACID RAIN 2020" will not be changed to
utilize the materials prepared so far (such as logo, HP, registration
I will inform you when the new date is decided.
Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
