In the event, Javier Arévalo presented the outcomes of the course "Global Forestry Challenges in Local Context" which is part of the M.Sc. European Forestry Erasmus Mundus. The module was delivered by the School of Forest Sciences of the University of Eastern Finland (Joensuu campus) under the direction of Professor Paavo Pelkonen, and with the contributions in the organisation of Javier Arévalo, David Gritten and Blas Mola-Yudego, as well as several other researchers of the Faculty and the EDC.
The module aimed to develop the students’ understanding of the current challenges facing the forestry sector at local and global levels, as well as the fundamental relationships between global and local actions, in an innovative way, as they interacted directly with many experts on different topics.
