Road to IFSS 2018 Mexico








Mexico is a country with a lot of opportunities in forestry, because of the biodiversity, amazing landscapes and the work that communities, enterprises and the government are making to increase productivity without compromise the environment.

The IFSS is the biggest annual event of IFSA. Each year this two week event is attended by over hundred students from all over the world. The symposium provides an opportunity to the students to exchange knowledge and share interests while participating in a range of forestry activities. During the Symposium the IFSA General Assembly takes place, and discusses all the different proposals collected through diverse commission and working groups. Furthermore, all IFSA positions for following year are put to a vote.

IFSS (International Symposium of Forest Students) has been organized since 1973, every year in a different country. In recent years, the symposium has been organized by universities from countries such as South Africa, Austria, the Philippines and Canada. The symposium participants are forestry students who come from all over the world and who have the opportunity to experience forestry as practiced in the host country. These symposia, organized under the auspices of the International Association of Forest Students (IFSA), aim to promote international forestry education and develop forestry professionals who are aware that ecosystems Forests thrive beyond political frontiers.
