Exploring Forestry and Conservation in China -- A Summer Study Program

This program has been developed as a four-week intensive program offered through the UBC Faculty of Forestry in partnership with Nanjing Forestry University (NFU).

This program contains two UBC courses which provide opportunities for students to examine the current development of Chinese forestry, wood industry, and conservation through indoor lectures, field trips to nature reserves, visits to local industries and plantation areas.

The program content includes vegetation and ecosystem, ecological and commercial forests development, biodiversity protection and management in global hotspots within China, forest policy and economy, commercial plantations, products processing, wood marketing and international trade, as well as the current development of forestland and forest tenure reform.

Since 2012, 33 students (28 from Faculty of Forestry, 2 from Faculty of Science, 2 from Faculty of Arts, 1 from Faculty of Management) went to China through the summer group study program. Through their hard work and team collaboration, many fantastic team papers and group presentations were developed.
