forest week.121645
The Forests Dialogue (TFD) — an F&ES-based multi-stakeholder platform that promotes conversation and trust-building to resolve forest-related conflicts — this week is hosting members of its Steering Committee for its annual TFD Week.

The event will enable experts with deep knowledge of forest issues and landscapes to meet with members of the F&ES and broader Yale communities.

Events during the week include lunches, roundtables, and networking opportunities organized in partnership with student interest groups, the F&ES Career Development Office, and other centers and programs at the School.

“This is a great opportunity for students to interact with senior international stakeholders from both the public and private sectors who represent a variety of perspectives and career trajectories,” said Gary Dunning, Executive Director of TFD.
