Objet : ALTERFOR Side Event Oct 1, 12:00-13:50 - XXV IUFRO World Congress



During the congress we will host a Side Event titled “Adapting Europe’s forests to global challenges: Lessons from ALTERFOR”, on October 1st from 12:00-13:50 at Venue R8 – wing 2. ALTERFOR is a large Horizon 2020 project (see, exploring the following overarching question: What alternative forest management models will enable to provide the desired ecosystem services under changing climate and societal conditions over the coming century? At the Side Event we will summarize and discuss the results from 10 landscapes spread all over Europe.


We noticed that you moderate session “D8r: Forest Biodiversity in the framework of global change and the role of Landscape” and would like to invite you to the event. Your session clearly relates to the topics of ALTERFOR and the presence of you and presenters from your session would be valuable for an insightful discussion.
