The topic of the summer school was Russian Forest Governance in a European context. Lectures by representatives of research, NGOs and industry, as well as panel discussions and sessions together with the students painted a picture on forest governance – theory, practice, and challenges that forestry sector is facing today.


The programme also included an excursion day to the Committee of Nature Resources of Leningrad Region (federal subject for forest administration), the Department of Forestry on North West Russia (regional office) and StoraEnso office in St.Petersburg. The visits gave the students a possibility to interview the local players and hear their viewpoints. The summer school was jointly organised by EFI, FTU and the University of Padova.
