Greetings friends and colleagues,
Apologies for cross posting. Please consider joining us in Sweden next June (2024) for a special session at the IUFRO 2024 World Congress. The session ‘Public engagement to keep urban trees and communities healthy’ (details below) is accepting both oral and poster presentations. Please note the deadline for abstract submissions is June 15, 2023.
IUFRO XXVI World Congress Session in Stockholm Sweden, June 23-29 2024 (https://iufro2024.com/)
Title: Public engagement to keep urban trees and communities healthy
Session type: Technical
Duration: 120 minutes
Congress theme: 4: Forests for sustainable societies
Oral and poster presentations welcome!
Organizers: Joey Hulbert1, Ana Perez-Sierra2, Rich Hallett3, Susan Hester4

2Forest Research, United Kingdom
3USDA Forest Service, United States
4University of Melbourne; University of New England, Australia
Description: Much of the world’s populations live in cities where they rely on the services of healthy urban forests. Keeping city trees healthy is critical for mitigating the effects of heat waves and ensuring communities remain resilient to climate change. However, urban forests are often the front-lines against invasive pest introductions and their general presence in the built environment predisposes them to the effects of climate change. Given the density of people in urban environments, there is enormous opportunity for public engagement to monitor and study tree health. This session will highlight many projects and approaches for engaging communities in urban forest health research globally.
Abstracts can be submitted at https://iufro2024.com/call-for-congress-abstracts/
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. We hope to see you there
We are grateful for the extension of abstract submission deadline by the congress organizers.
