The Viikki Tropical Resources Institute (VITRI) is coordinating a course titled Managing Sustainable Forest Landscapes (6 ECTS) at the Helsinki Summer School this summer, from the 4th to the 20th of August, 2015. The course seeks to enhance the understanding of forest ecosystem services, not least as the future of global forest resources is a daily concern in international policy debate and processes.
Helsinki Summer School offers fully credited, research-based courses for students and graduates, as well as accommodation and social programme. Students from Universities in Finland have a special price.
The course program can be found here!
Remember to check out the course’s own blog here! We have a great group of 25 participants coming from 13 different countries, who will be updating the blog once the course is running. Interesting content is guaranteed!
You are advised to contact the coordinator of the course, Mr. Saska Lohi (saska.lohi(at)helsinki.fi) if you have any questions regarding the course.
