The annual conference SILVA NETWORK was held at our faculty from 26.6. to 28.6.2017, this time with the theme of Forests for university education: examples and experiences.
SILVA Network is a network of European Forestry Education Institutions. This network was established in 1989 to stimulate and facilitate co-operation in forestry education in Europe.
The conference was attended by representatives of all major forestry faculties in Europe, as well as guests from Asia and representatives of IFSA. The participants of the conference agreed in the final communiqué that forestry education, despite modern technology, can not be done without direct teaching in forests. The text of the communiqué will be accessible on our website after the final approval of all participating institutions.
