The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and the City of Stockholm in close collaboration with the Nordic and Baltic partners, welcome delegates from all over the world to Stockholm 2024 under the theme Forests and Society Towards 2050.

The IUFRO World Congress is one of the largest global forest events, held every five years since 1893. The congress gives a unique opportunity to gather worldwide leading scientists and top leaders to contribute and co-create for a sustainable future within forestry, climate and society – aligned with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The IUFRO World Congress 2024 is a collaborative global network platform with great opportunity for knowledge sharing and getting access to the latest science and research. The outcome of the event will also set the future research agenda and roadmap for next generations, this time focusing on the congress theme Forests & Society Towards 2050.

The congress week gives the delegates great opportunity to discuss the important role of our forests. We offer arenas for innovations, forward-looking dialogues, and the foundations for collaborations.

Mistra Digital Forest co-arranges a forest excursion in the context of IUFRO on Wednesday 26/6:

Excursion: Digitalisation for sustainable forest management

Digitalisation is advancing rapidly, and used wisely it will enhance our possibilities to manage forests sustainably. During this field excursion we will visit the Swedish state forest company Sveaskog and get an insight into current practical forest management and digitalisation.

We will explore Swedish state-of-the-art inventory and mapping, which provide important knowledge for planning and facilitates development of innovative digital services.

New methods and remote sensing techniques to assess forest damage, biodiversity and conservation values will be demonstrated in the field. There will also be time for informal discussions and opportunities to experience the Swedish forest landscape by foot.
