These activities take place in Helsinki and other places in Southern Finland. Most activities are also communicated in hybrid mode.

    Symposium participants will discuss gaps in forest education at university and college level including further education, curriculum of forest education such as Forest Education Global Core Curriculum (FEGCO), and digital tools and platforms. The aim of the symposium is to discuss about

    • how education could find best ways to combine theory and practice
    • how digital tools could be used to enhance forest education.
