International outlook

– Introduction of new international fellows

Our Academy includes international fellows in all parts of the world, some close to Sweden and some far away. Some are quite frequent guests at the Academy, some disappear out of sight soon after their election, which is a great loss for the Academy.

Geographical distance is, obviously, a challenge, but also the lack of personal connections between fellows in different countries. As a small step towards interaction and mutual exchange we arrange a seminar on the day after the Commemorative meeting to give recently elected fellows a chance to present themselves and their work in an informal way, and to discuss common, current affairs with other fellows.

Please help us welcome our new fellows by listening to their presentations and by engaging in discussions on current issues in different parts of the world. There is no strict programme for the afternoon, but each new fellow will give a, 10-15 minutes long, personal presentation, including a few minutes for discussions and questions.

After a break for coffee and informal chats, another seminar will be offered, called “Status of Forest Certification in Africa”, with a key note by our new international fellow, Professor Demel Teketay, and moderated by Professor Lisa Sennerby Forsse, incoming president of the Academy. This seminar will be held between 15.30 and 17.30 and the detailed program, with a separate link for registration, will be published shortly on
