Issues in the Sustainable Management of Temperate and Tropical Forests
Robert Simeone will present his experiences over the last 35 years of working with indigenous communities in the Amazonian regions of Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador that led him to become one of the six founders of the Forest Stewardship Council. Join Robert as he describes one forester’s experience in confronting global natural forest losses and the emergence of new concepts in Sustainable Forest Management. His talk includes a brief history of forest science, global forest trends today, conservation strategies to save the forest, wilderness and the indigenous mind, and new forestry within an ecological context. This event is held in partnership and located at Trees for Tomorrow.
