Performing Forests: Reassessing, Reprioritizing, and Managing Forests and Wood for Low Environmental Impact
What forest and wood futures are being produced by global climate change discourses, by whom and with what effects? Forests are under pressure to perform significant roles in societal responses to global climate change and efforts to reduce the environmental impact of society. They are expected to meet interconnected policy goals: to sink carbon dioxide, to secure biodiversity, to lower the environmental impacts of society, to promote resilience and resourcefulness, to reduce waste, and to substitute renewable for non-renewable energy and materials. Participants will reflect on the emerging discourses on future forests and forestry at different geographical scales, and among diverse actors in the forestry sector in various national contexts.
Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Julia Affolderbach (Luxemburg), Alex Clapp (Burnaby), Roger Hayter (Burnaby), Klaus Pukall (TU München), Georg Winkel (Freiburg).
