The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) together with Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University is hosting the much anticipated Forestry Indaba, from 13 to 15 July at NMMU George Campus bringing together a range of stakeholders from the forestry and related industries.

The three-day event, which forms part of the run-up to the World Forestry Congress (WFC) scheduled for September this year, will feature the same theme and subthemes as the WFC.

The event is held under the theme “Forests and People: Investing in a Sustainable Future”. It also includes exhibitions by industry and related stakeholders, as well as a special focus on the youth, aimed at capturing the inputs and contributions from senior students and young academics through a dynamic interactive process – a youth café/dialogue on the second day of the Indaba.

Join in the engagement on Twitter ‪#‎ForestryIndaba2015‬ for the Forestry Indaba and ‪#‎Forests2015‬ for the WFC.
