    The use of digital tools has become an increasing trend for people around the world in their day-to-day dealings. There is firm belief that in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, urgent measures need to be in place to ensure several societal priorities are addressed, which include, amongst many others, food and health where continued access to education and training, including on forestry, is imperative to avoid bottlenecks towards sustainable development where priorities may have to be readjusted in the short, mid and longer-term. Particularly, on education, it has become very evident that digitalization has been one of the most important priorities for the global community, who fully realise that continued education through improved teaching techniques imparted online, even during unprecedented times, will better prepare younger generations to be more resilient to similar exigencies in future. This breakout session will aim to discuss relevant information on how to utilize the digital opportunities such as online course and practical software to improve the quality of forest learning. The session will be a most useful and suitable medium to disseminate and promote current efforts on the provision of inclusive and up-to-date digital opportunities for forest learning in a global setting. This will include the reflection from the current ongoing development of ITTO-FAO-IUFRO Online Course on Legal and Sustainable Supply Chains (LSSC). Another aim will also be to examine the potential shortcomings of online education/training with specific reference to forestry/SFM/timber industry.

    “Forestra”, a new online gateway to global forest education is currently being developed under the joint FAO-IUFRO-ITTO Project “Creation of a Global Forest Education Platform and Launch of a Joint Initiative under the Aegis of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests. As the world becomes more digitally connected, the opportunity for online resource access grows. Forestra is designed to facilitate this access to forest-related knowledge and information through an innovative semantic search function. Forestra is being set up with the following specific objectives: • Serving for global knowledge sharing and dissemination of information from and for all kinds of forest education institutes and forest educators; and • Providing linkages and enable interaction with other education, training and awareness initiatives around the world. The information on Forestra falls under three main categories, which can be filtered: • Tertiary Forest Education • Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), both long- and short-term • Forest-related Public Environmental Education This session will demonstrate the prototype Forestra and offer the opportunity to test the search function on a test dataset.
