Uso de los bosques versus protección forestal

Desde la producción de madera hasta la conservación de la biodiversidad y la regulación climática: los bosques ofrecen una multitud de servicios a la sociedad.

Sin embargo, las demandas o énfasis de servicios particulares pueden dar lugar a conflictos de intereses. Para garantizar una gestión forestal sostenible, la provisión de valiosos servicios ecosistémicos y el mantenimiento de la biodiversidad a largo plazo, necesitamos basar nuestras decisiones en los datos disponibles y el conocimiento científico, y considerar los posibles resultados. En MULTIPLIERS, los estudiantes interactuarán con científicos, silvicultores, gestores de conservación de la naturaleza y otros actores relevantes. Se llevará a cabo una capacitación práctica, por ejemplo, en sitios de demostración llamados «marteloscopios«, donde se puede investigar el valor ecológico y económico de los árboles en actividades educativas en el bosque. Estos ejemplos de la vida real aumentarán el compromiso de los estudiantes y su disposición/habilidad para discutir temas complejos y sus compromisos teniendo en cuenta la toma decisiones basadas en diferentes perspectivas como: las económicas, ecológicas, culturales y sociales sobre los bosques. Todo ello busca encontrar compromisos y desarrollar diferentes vías de acción. Esta actividad tendrá lugar primero en Suecia y, más adelante, está planificado que ocurra en Alemania.
