The Viikki Tropical Resources Institute (VITRI) is coordinating a course titled Managing Sustainable Forest Landscapes (6 ECTS) at the Helsinki Summer School this summer, from the 7th to the 23rd of August, 2018. The course seeks to enhance the understanding of forest ecosystem services, not least as the future of global forest resources is a daily concern in international policy debate and processes.

Helsinki Summer School offers fully credited, research-based courses for students and graduates, as well as accommodation and social programme. Students from Universities in Finland have a special price.

More information on the course can be found here and at the HSS webpages.

Remember to check out the course’s own blog for 2015 here! We had a great group of 25 participants coming from 13 different countries, who will be updating the blog once the course is running. Interesting content is guaranteed!
