Russian specialists of forestry education in TAMK
A group of Russian headmasters from forestry schools visited TAMK this week. This visit was part of the project, in which a new curriculum standard for the forestry schools of Russia is being developed together with TAMK. The group contained 10 people from different parts of north-west Russia.
During the visit, the group visited Metsähallitus, a visit which the group had especially wished for. The visit also contained a field trip, where the group saw examples of sapling care. TAMK 4th year Forestry students also participated by showing the visitors how organising wood procurement is handled in Finland.
The project of renewing the curriculums in Russian forestry schools is a part of the Finnish-Russian Development Programme on Sustainable Forest Management and Conservation of Biological Diversity in Northwest Russia, which is funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
