The Forestry Education (FE) commission was founded at the IFSS 2010 in South Korea. It’s role will be determined in the SAPFE (Students Plan for Forestry Education). The creation of the SAPFE is one of the first big tasks of the fe commission. Further goals are the finding and establishing of a training system for IFSA and the work on a database for forestry education study courses.
The commission offers the great chance of pointing out problems in forestry education and showing possible solutions. It can beyond that play a role itself in the improvement of forestry education. The FE commission stands for the students voice in forestry education topics and can also act as the connecting link between organisations, universities and students.
As forestry education is a topic that concerns all of us, everybody is very welcome to contribute to the work of the commission, or as a commissioner or also just with an e-mail with something you have on your mind about forestry education.

Working within Capacity Development Commission, the Forestry Education and Training Sub-Commission works to advance both formal and informal education, learning and professional development opportunities for IFSA officials, members, and the wider forestry community.
I work on a collaborative team with IFSA and IUFRO focused on bringing together perspectives of students, educators, and professionals on education in the forest sector.
I am part of the IFSA-family since couple of years and I strongly believe in the power of the IFSA network and I want to facilitate multi-actors in reaching the IFSA strategy globally and locally by supporting and developing cross-sectoral learning, training and related activities. I will support and build trust within and across the five sub-commissions, and other IFSA members, making sure to enhance collaboration and transparency. I would make sure our members would receive support, not only today but also in the future. I will do my best to seek and invest my time in overlooking the activities of the Capacity Development Commission and in reaching the IFSA strategy, together.
