Forest Innovation Reviews (FIRz) is a forum for innovative ideas for solving some of today’s most significant challenges. The inaugural FIRz event will create a space for presenting well-formed ideas about forests, forest management, forest products and forest-rich communities, conveyed through short, powerful talks.
Some of the most innovative thinkers from around the world will gather for a day of breakthrough thinking and sharing about the biggest challenges — and potential solutions — that face forests and forest health. Then those ideas will be shared around the world via video. The presentation voted by FIRz attendees as “most likely to make a lasting difference” will be awarded $10,000.
The first FIRz symposium will take place at the University of Georgia, Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources in Athens, Georgia on Wednesday, September 18, 2019
