XV World Forestry Congress
The WFC is the largest gathering of forestry stakeholders and takes places about every 6 years. It offers an opportunity to a broad range of stakeholders to build a vision for forests for the future, share information and experience on scientific, technical, and policy matters, exchange ideas, and seek common solutions. The WFC Secretariat invites authors working in the forestry and land-use sectors to submit new abstracts for papers, posters and videos, as well as new proposals for side events relevant to the Congress theme "Building a Green, Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests." The submission deadlines are 3 September 2021 for videos; and until 30 July 2021 for side events. Learn more at the Congress website.
