Registration now open for XIV World Forestry Congress
The Congress will be the most significant opportunity in 2015 for the world’s foresters and forest supporters to share expertise and experience, forge new partnerships and define a coherent, global vision of the roles of forests and forestry in sustainable development.
The Congress programme will be professionally and culturally rewarding, with a variety of sessions, events and dialogues on the most pressing issues facing forests and forestry today. In addition to plenary and parallel sessions on the main theme, Forests and People: Investing in a Sustainable Future, there will be special events on Africa, climate change, fuel wood and youth as well as the International Forests and Water Dialogue, the Innovation and Investment Forum, the Collaborative Partnerships on Forests Wangari Maathai Award 2015, and the Collaborative Partnership on Sustainable Wildlife Management Forum.
Who can attend?
People from a wide range of sectors and all parts of the world are encouraged to take part in the Congress. Whether you are a forest user, work for a government organization, NGO, private company, scientific or professional body, or simply have a personal interest, you are welcome to take part.
Spaces are limited and we are expecting great demand, so take advantage of the Congress’s “early-bird” rates by registering before 30 May 2015. Full registration will give you access to all events during the five days of the Congress, while partial registration is available for people wanting to attend only one, two or three days.
Special prices are available to citizens of South Africa and eligible countries. Reduced rates are also available for students, retirees, and people accompanying participants.
