Who We Are

IFSA is a globally organised and locally operating students organisation. We connects forestry students to their peers and forest-related organisations and policy platforms. Essentially we’re in the business of connecting, empowering, and educating the next generation of leaders.

Our vision of “a world that appreciates forests” describes the dream of having all people and societies on the earth recognize the full worth of forests and fully understand forests, grasping their implications and being grateful for their multi-fold contributions to humanity.
