Calling for gender-aware and inclusive practices in forest education - An open letter by IFSA
In 2022, the International Forestry Students’ Association - IFSA, the biggest international network of students of forestry and related fields, published the IFSA Open Letter on Gender and Forest Education, strongly supported by its members. IFSA wants students and young professionals of all genders to have the same opportunities in education, their choice of study and personal development. The open letter calls for a higher acceptance and visibility of all genders in forestry science and practice, through gender-aware education and accountability for lack of accessibility due to gender-related structural oppression.
