The first episode of the new IUFRO Branching Out: the forest podcast is now available at Spotify, Apple Podcasts and its website.

The episode title is IUFRO World Congress 2024, a new chance to meet and includes clips with Elena Paoletti (CNR), Fredrik Ingemarson (SLU), John Parrotta (USFS) and Sarah Burns (TÜ Dresden) with information about the Congress theme, Forests and Society towards 2050, practicalities and more things you can expect. The episode is hosted by Jose Bolaños (IUFRO HQ) and features Jennifer Hayes, USFS and Deputy Coordinator of IUFRO’s Communication and Public Relations Working Party.

This podcast branches out of IUFRO Spotlight, and to different disciplines and sectors, new potential members, and audiences. The aim is to break down complex topics so listeners can discover the role of forests and trees for people and nature and also get informed about what is going on in the world of forest research. It will also bring diverse voices and stories from around the world. The first season will center on the IUFRO World Congress 2024 in Stockholm, Sweden. There will be 6 episodes in total (4 in 2023 and 2 in 2024 just before the Congress). The next episode will be out in summer, and will discuss how to strengthen forest resilience and adaptation to stress.

Do not miss it and share the podcast with friends and colleagues!
