The presenters represent the Forest Agency and research, and have long experience in working on these issues from their different perspectives. Questions that will be dealt with are:

  • -What are society´s expectations on forests?
  • -Who governs the forest in Sweden?
  • -How and why does the forest governance differ from the agricultural governance,
  • and what are the implications?
  • -Can landscape perspectives help to solve the global challenges, and are they compatible with today´s policies and ownership structures?
  • -What are the power relations between the forest industry and other industries?
  • -What are the power relations between the forest industry and NGO:s?
