With respect to climate change mitigation, the sequestration of carbon by forests and soils is one of the most important ecosystem services of terrestrial ecosystems. Large efforts have been undertaken and major political initiatives started to increase the carbon storage capacity of forests and their products.

As a response to the continuously increasing need of professionals with competencies and knowledge in this area at a national and international level, the Chair of Silviculture at the University of Freiburg (in cooperation with partners) has once more offered a three-week course in Carbon Forestry to practitioners and scientists in the forest project sector from all over the world from Feb-March 2021. In her talk, Dr. Sabine Reinecke will share her experiences and key lessons of this online course, connecting participants from 19 different countries on 5 continents, using formats such as video-lectures, interviews, workshops and life exchange with lecturers & peers, but also practical exercises such as field measurements.

The EPICURtalks lecture will be followed by a discussion with Stefanie Klose, Project Manager and Lecturer in the EPICUR study track “Natural and Societal Sustainability Studies”, University College Freiburg.

Please RSVP to: k.kiefel@zv.uni-freiburg.de by May, 31st. Attendees will receive their zoom link on June, 01st. The event will take approximately an hour.

The EPICURtalks series explores the advancement in teaching & learning, including Liberal Arts and Sciences approaches as well as developments of new tools and didactics in digital and hybrid settings. The EPICURtalks will highlight the innovative teaching & learning projects at the EPICUR alliance and its eight partner universities. Hosted by the University of Freiburg, the series will travel virtually from partner to partner, inviting speakers from across the disciplinary spectrum to share their diverse perspectives on the future of teaching & learning in brief talks that inspire and invite further discussion.
