Dear colleagues in IUFRO Division 9
We begin with our sincere hopes that you, your families and your friends and colleagues
are all managing to stay healthy (physically and mentally) during the pandemic. The
simple phrase “How are you?” has gained new importance for us all.
We are all struggling with Covid-19 in our own countries and workplaces and it is
inevitable that planning IUFRO activities has not been a priority. In a pandemic, virtual
events offer possibilities, but planning these and organising the web-based platforms
still takes more time than many of us have.
To overcome this, we have arranged a partnership with the organisers of the 20th
Commonwealth Forestry Conference to include sessions for members of Divisions 9 and 6.
This virtual conference is being hosted by University of British Columbia, Vancouver,
Canada from 16-19 August 2021. More information is available here https://cfc2021.ubc.ca/
We are inviting you to join this conference with a 10 minute pre-recorded presentation
(uploaded in advance) and by participating in a live discussion during daylight hours in
your own part of the world. Although the conference is English, we think that
pre-recording presentations will help everyone who is not a fluent English-speaker.
Registration costs are very low, ranging $ 12 to $ 80 US. Please see the invitation
attached. You do not have to be a resident of a Commonwealth country to participate in
Please contact Stephen Wyatt, Janette Bulkan or the CFC2021 organisers for more
