2019 WFI International Fellowship Program – Forestry Lightning Talks

September 12, 2019 @ 5:30 pm7:30 pm


Meet eight Fellows from around the world who came to Oregon to see how we meet global forestry challenges. They hope to take what they’ve learned here to improve their communities back home. Fellows will be sharing their project findings and how they are planning to implement change using their new knowledge. What we do in Oregon is inspiring people to impact their own corner of the planet.

Join us for the International Fellows‘ final ten-minute presentations!

  • Romain Matile (France): Wildfire prevention and prescribed fire
  • Ana Kanoppa (Brazil): Lessons from the Pacific Northwest on mobilizing funds for conservation
  • William Maiden (UK): Pests, diseases and climate change in the urban forest
