Summer School Forests and Extremes
The Summer School „Forests and Extremes: Crisis or Transition?” (August 18-25, 2024, Davos) wants to face up to the complexity of compound and cascading events. Alongside national and international experts from multiple disciplines, participants will expose themselves to the unknown: the future of terrestrial ecosystems with a focus on forests! Through field excursions, input lectures, group assignments, and ample opportunities to interact with peers and practitioners, participants will acquire practical and theoretical knowledge on future extremes. This includes understanding their expected impacts on functioning and services of forests and other ecosystems, the consequences for society and economy, and possible response options.
