The Winter Meeting in Slovenia and the SERM in Italy are unique opportunities to get an insight of forestry in foreign countries and meeting new friends! There are only two places per LC, therefore we have to decide a list for our LC.

Come to our meeting and secure your spot!

IFSS 2015 Philippines – „Ensuring life for all“

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This year’s International Forstry Students’ Symposium (IFSS) took place in the Philippines from 28th July to 10th August 2015 and was organized by the Association of Filipino Forestry Students. The IFSS is the main international IFSA meeting where the General Assemblies take place and forestry students from all over the world come together. Five LC members from BOKU (Katharina Albrich, Alice Cosatti, Antonia Lindau, Manuel Rakos and Jasmin Zisch) had the opportunity to participate IFSS 2015 and present next year’s IFSS, hosted by Austria.

We were about 90 students from 24 different countries and it was for most of them the first IFSS. The symposium took place in Manila, where we had many lectures and presentations in the Senate of the Philippines and in Los Baños, at the campus of the University of the Philippines. We visited around Los Baños IRRI (International Rice Research Institute), went hiking on Makiling Mountain, visited the Makiling Botanical Garden, had many Jeepney rides (and stuck often in traffic), went mangrove planting and swimming on an island and some of us swam through a mangrove forest.

Also the very important General Assemblies, statute changes and workshops were held and gave an insight in IFSA’s international work and structure. We are also very proud to announce that three of our LC members have been elected for official positions: Katharina Albrich – Liason Officer for IUFRO, Alice Cosatti – Regional Representative Southern Europe and Jasmin Zisch – Head of Communication Commission. Congratulations!
