For over a decade, the World Forest Institute (WFI) has offered a unique International Fellowship Program to professionals in natural resources–such as foresters, environmental educators, land managers, NGO practioners and researchers–to conduct a practical research project at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.. In addition to their specific research projects, Fellows participate in weekly field trips, interviews and site visits to Northwest forestry organizations, state, local and national parks, universities, public and private timberlands, trade associations, mills, and corporations. The Fellowship is a unique opportunity to learn about sustainable forestry from the Pacific Northwest forestry sector, and to work with colleagues from around the world.
WFI Fellows benefit from:
- Networking with a broad array of forestry stakeholders—from mills to public agencies to the non-profit sector—in the Pacific Northwest
- Gaining a global perspective on the many challenges facing us in forestry
- Understanding how globalization, climate change and forest ownership trends are changing the forestry sector
