IUFRO: Landscape management @ City Conference Center (KCC)
Sep 17 @ 08:00 – Sep 19 @ 17:00

From the webpage: “Landscape management practices (including forestry, agriculture, water management) and their impact on ecosystems have been mostly studied at small local spatial scales to support multifunctionality and sustainability of landscape. Translation to higher scales cannot be achieved by simple multiplying of the data from the stand or local scale by the larger area of the landscape. At the same time, it is evident that the forest alone influences the landscape and its other elements and vice versa. Thus, proper forest practices have a significant impact on economic, as well as environmental and social aspects at the landscape level. Forest resources management impacts on the larger landscape scale is insufficiently studied and understood. To achieve a sustainable landscape it requires precise data, reliable models and relevant decision systems.

This Conference will focus on presentation of recent research findings in:

  • DataNew, progressive and innovative approaches and scientific achievements in terrestrial data gathering, remote sensing and data processing as a base of the landscape management
  • Risk and uncertaintyClimate change brings many associated effects, which include increasing occurrence of extreme natural events and disturbances (such as storms, fires, droughts, damage caused by pests etc.). These factors are significantly affecting the landscape on the scale of forest and non-forest ecosystems.
  • Modelling and assessmentApproaches for predicting landscape components, disturbances and landscape development are crucial for preparing and acceptance required decisions.
  • DecisionTo build a bridge between science and practice is the prerequisite for development of an effective decision support system based on temporal and spatial optimization of landscape management supporting bioeconomy and ecosystem services and reflecting adaptive management.”

Jämställdhetskonferens: Från #metoo till handling @ Nolia
Oct 18 @ 08:30 – 16:30

Från Länsstyrelsen i Västerbottens hemsida (https://www.lansstyrelsen.se/vasterbotten):

“Välkommen till en nationell skoglig jämställdhetskonferens som anordnas av Skogslänet Västerbotten och Nolia AB.

Denna gruppering genomför denna konferens för att tillsammans med skogssektorn syna den skogliga normen och göra sektorn mer inkluderande och jämställd.

Inom samarbetet Skogslänet Västerbotten har Länsstyrelsen Västerbotten, Skogsstyrelsen, SLU, Region Västerbotten och flera av länets företag under flera år arbetat för att förändra strukturer och föreställningar som begränsar kvinnor och män att aktivt bruka, äga, vistas i och arbeta i skog. Denna gruppering har gemensamt antagit en avsiktsförklaring och arbetar aktivt för att få fler skogliga aktörer att ansluta sig till arbetet för en mer jämställd skogssektor.

Nolia AB som sedan 1984 arrangerar Skogsnolia, den ledande skogsmässan i norra Sverige, gör nu gemensam sak med Skogslänet Västerbotten och genomför en konferens för att syna den skogliga normen i akt och mening att göra skogssektorn mer inkluderande för alla.

Målgrupp: Skogsägare, studenter, skogsföretag, skogsbruk, myndigheter, organisationer inom skoglig sektor, politiker etc.
