A sneak peek into Day 1 – Taking Stock

One of society’s great challenges of the next three decades will be to balance the need for low-carbon urban construction with the need to conserve and restore thriving forests. Canada will find itself in the centre of this global crucible, called upon to provide “wood to the world” so that expanding cities avoid the worst climate impacts of building with concrete and steel.  

Three panels on day one of the symposium will feature the following themes: 
“Ways of Seeing a Forest” (ecology, forestry, society and Indigeneity) 
“Carbon and Climate Change”  
“Policies and Practices” (forestry, building code, climate targets) 

Date:    September 14 & 15, 2022 
Time:   10 a.m.- 2 p.m. PT 
Where: Online

Athabasca registration

The registration deadline is the 10th of each month for history, theory, and technical courses with our educational service provider, Athabasca University. Courses will start on the 1st of the following month. 
Remember to register on the Syllabus Student Portal as well. Our systems are not linked with Athabasca University, so this does not register you twice or result in any fees. This simply allows us to maintain the student records and transcripts in our own system.
