Reaching decisions

Every day decisions are made,whether in politics, in companies or in the private sector.

People in the forestry and timber industry in particular have to face complex questions with long-term effects. But how do decisions arise in this area, and who is involved? How do they deal with uncertainties and the complexity of questions in the decision-making process? On January 30-31, 2020, the 40th Winter Colloquium on Forestry and Wood, which has been organized by the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Freiburg since 1975, will approach these questions from a multidisciplinary perspective. Examples from the field, political aspects and scientific expertise will be presented. Decision-makers from companies, administration, politics and interest groups will discuss forest and timber industry topics together with researchers and students.
