Koli Forum 2019, 9 - 10 October 2019
During the past 10 years Koli Forum has established itself as the high level discussion platform for global leaders on sustainable use of natural resources bringing together business leaders, investors, policy makers, academia and civil society. The participants in this event will create a common understanding of the steps needed for the forest-based sector to become a true forerunner in sustainability.
Conference programme (pdf, 9 October)
Special focus in this year’s event was placed on opportunities available through more intense Nordic cooperation, learning about the best practices in handling trade-offs and building new business eco-systems. Other topical issues on the agenda were the EU proposals related to sustainable finance, the latest understanding of the health benefits offered by forests as well as solutions to find a balance between e.g. tourism vs. climate and biodiversity impacts.
Koli Forum is known to be an excellent place for networking where the participants and speakers will have ample opportunities to discuss and establish important contacts. The speakers represent a wide range of organisations including e.g. the Nordic ministers of agriculture and forestry as well as the environment, forest industry executives, financial sector executives, university professors and international research organisations.
