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!

Webinar 6: "Forests and forest products: the use of native species and the role of sociobiobiversity in Latin America", August 23, 3pm CEST, 10am Brasilia, 8am Colombia
We are glad to announce that the sixth webinar of the IUFRO Landscape Ecology WP Webinar Series - Emerging issues in landscape ecology will take place on August 23 and it will be dedicated to the topic "Forests and forest products: the use of native species and the role of sociobiobiversity in Latin America".
Guests Juana Palma (Chile), Rene Camacho (Colombia) and Henrique Pereira (Brazil), and host Sónia Carvalho Ribeiro (co-coordinator of the IUFRO LE WP for Latin America), will discuss the role of forests and forest products, particularly non-timber forest products (NTFP) and the use of biodiversity in traditional livelihoods and the economy. They will also present case studies and address issues related to data available for assessing NTFPs role and to policy, as well as other topics of interest for both Latin America and international audiences.

Symposium: Tropical Restoration-Reforestation – Pros and Cons
Sponsored by: The International Society of Tropical Foresters, The International Forestry Working Group of the Society of American Foresters, and Terraformation
Date: Friday, 5 August 2022, 11 am- 2 pm EDT, 3-6 pm GMT. - Find your time zone at https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
The goal of this symposium is to present some of the topics and debates connected to tropical restoration and reforestation, to help sharpen our thinking about what works under what conditions, and why. The presentations will range widely from recent controversies associated with tropical restoration and reforestation, to issues linked with governance strategies for tree planting projects, seed banks for restoration, Eucalyptus as a nonnative tree in reforestation, approaches to verification of ecosystem restoration, and getting funding for projects.

Online Micro Certificate: Climate Vulnerability & Adaptation
October – December 2022
Register here: https://forestry.ubc.ca/programs/certificate/climate-micro-certificate/
The Faculty of Forestry’s Climate Vulnerability and Adaptation (CVA) Micro-Certificate is a flexible 8-week online program that provides forest professionals with an understanding of climate science, vulnerability assessments, adaptation development, and how it is applied to management and business case adaptation.
Today, government and certification agencies are requiring more accountability in meeting climate change, and green industry standards. This has resulted in a surge in demand for working professionals who wish to advance their knowledge in the field of climate science, assessment and application of climate impacts and adaptation in a forestry context.
