Following our session at the 25th IUFRO World Congress, we have launched an
international mailing-list to connect forest health researchers interested
in public engagement (specifically including, but not limited to, citizen
The purpose of the mailing-list is to connect a global network of project
leaders to share resources and ideas. Anyone working in the space between
forest health and society is welcome to join.
You can join by visiting https://groups.io/g/ForestHealthCitSci or by

We hope project leaders will use the network to:
- share resources and opportunities (guides, publications, data, grant
opportunities, jobs, post-grad positions, etc.).
- organize events (conference sessions, webinars, working groups, etc.)
- collaborate on writing (special issues, commentaries, responses to
opinions, popular writing, etc).
- provide/seek ideas and guidance in project development and achievement
(project design, recruitment, engagement, analyses, training, etc).
- and more (anything relevant to public engagement and/or forest health).
Thank you for your time and attention.
