Our EFI 2018 Scientific Seminar took place in Alghero, Sardinia on 27 September.
It discussed the need for systemic change to build a sustainable future within the new framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and how forests, sustainable forestry and forest-based solutions can connect the SDGs to action.
In addition, it looked at how to create a compelling forest narrative as basis for sustainable development in a context of growing urbanization.
