COFFI 2018 Opportunity!

IFSA-UBC, together with the Forestry Graduate Student Association (FGSA), is organizing the youth portion of the 76th session of the ECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry (COFFI2018).

We are pleased to invite IFSA UBC members to participate in the fourth Future Forestry Leaders Symposium (FFLS). The event will be held from November 7th to 8th, 2018, at the East Building of the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The event will showcase the diversity of international forestry-related research at a poster session on November 7th, followed by an interactive career forum on November 8th to connect students with UNECE delegates and industry experts.

Please submit an abstract for our poster session on topics within, but not limited to, the following three themes: forests and environment, forest products and technology, and forest markets and policy.

We are asking that abstracts be submitted by email to no later than August 31st, 2018. Abstract guidelines and registration for the interactive career forum can be found on the website:

Please note that students do NOT have to submit a poster in order to be a youth delegate and participate in the interactive career forum.

It would be a great opportunity to connect with other LCs (particularly those from North America) as we hope that IFSA members from other LCs will be able to participate in the COFFI2018 meeting.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch at in case you have questions.
