International Forestry Summer School

Aleksander Marinšek

International forestry summer school Slovenia



International forestry summer school is inviting students of forestry and forestry-related students!

Aim & objectives: European forests face a major challenge due to climate change. If we want to preserve forests and reduce the impact of climate change in the future, we need to increase forest resilience and stability today. Some questions on how to do this will be answered in this summer school. The focus will be on silviculture solutions and best forestry practices used in Central Europe to strengthen forest resilience to climate change. A full day of the summer school will be devoted to a field trip to the Dinaric fir-beech forest region (Kočevsko). 


Target audience: this summer school is aimed at forestry or forestry-related students who come from EU Member States and see knowledge of forests and climate change as a potential for their future studies and professional activities. The summer school will be held in English; therefore, knowledge of English is mandatory.  


Organisers & trainers: 

dr. Boštjan Mali (Slovenian Forestry Institute, Slovenia) 

dr. Eckart Senitza (Pro Silva, Austria) 

in collaboration with colleagues from Slovenian Forestry InstituteSlovenia State Forests, d.o.o., the Slovenia Forest Service and the University of Ljubljana, BF, the Department of Forestry and Renewable Forest Resources.
