The FEF is excited to announce the 2019 conference – The Stories Behind Our Trees. With Key note speakers from the US, workshops, networking and an industry forest field day, the conference is a dynamic chance to connect and collaborate with educators and industry professionals. The conference aims to connect industry professionals with educators to facilitate dialogue around communicating about forest systems, the importance of forests and the ways that people interact with forest landscapes.
With collaboration from educators and industry the conference theme – The Stories Behind Our Trees will focus on our personal connection to forests and how these stories can lead to education for sustainability and active participation in the future of forests and forest industries.
The FEF hopes to attract a wide range of industry participants, as well as local teachers to develop and build shared goals for forest education in Tasmania.
