Forest Meetings creates an open, safe, knowledge-based meeting place for discussions about one of the core futures issues - the forest.
When forests meet ecological, economic, social and cultural dimensions of sustainability, a range of diverse stakeholders are implied. They include industry, governance, science, indigenous communities. They also include a multitude of species, tourism, arts and media – and more. As stakeholders meet, different understandings of knowledge, and different culture and languages also have to meet.
In this forest collaboration, we will explore how we can meaningfully and effectively collaborate across many forms of stakeholders. We will do this by drawing on innovative examples of stakeholder collaboration, and together co-create principles of engagement to use in the following sessions.
About Forest Meetings
The project Forest Meetings creates an open, safe, knowledge-based meeting place for discussions about one of the core futures issues - the forest. By meeting across disciplinary and sector boundaries and by bringing together scientific and artistic methods, we create conditions for new discoveries and insights about how we can be with the forest.
Forest Meetings are hosted by Linnaeus University and the Green Sustainability Knowledge environment and designed by Mathilda Tham, Miranda Moss, Nasra Rashiid, Juliana Restrepo, Åsa Ståhl, Jorge Zapico.
