The World Forestry Congress, which is held every six years, is the biggest global event in the forestry calendar. In 2015 it was held in Durban, South Africa, and in 2021 it will be held in Seoul, South Korea. Here’s a snapshot of South African delegates, Busi Mnguni and Sisa Damoyi, at the 2015 WFC, the first to be held on the African continent.

The XV World Forestry Congress (WFC) will be held from 24 to 28 May 2021 in Seoul, South Korea.  Preparations for this Congress, which occurs every six years, are in full swing. The WFC Secretariat has opened a call for abstracts for papers, posters and videos as well as a call for proposals for side events. 

The theme is ‘Building a Green, Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests’. The WFC Secretariat is keen to receive contributions from as many diverse stakeholders as possible on a wide variety of topics, in order to create a relevant and exciting event.

The deadline for submissions of abstracts for papers and posters and side event proposals is 31 August 2020, and the deadline to submit videos is 5 October 2020.
