Sustainable Forestry Initiative Conference
September 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Sustainable Forestry Initiative – Sept. 27-29, conference, Ottawa, Canada; (202) 596-3450; www.sfiprogram.com.
Close to 300 people attended the 2016 SFI Annual Conference for three days of discussions, workshops, presentations, and networking in Clearwater, Florida, and brought life to the theme – Linking Future Forests to Communities. Attendees were immersed in a range of topics. Many commented: “Where else can you learn about conservation, habitats, markets, supply chains, and communities all in one place?”
The range of conference attendees showed the SFI community is growing in numbers and diversity all the time. This year’s conference brought together landowners, brand owners, conservationists, Indigenous groups, students, university deans, community groups, government officials, and more. This diversity is also reflected in the SFI Board, which represents the environmental, social and economic sectors equally.
