  • What is the true value of tasmania's forest?


    Looking at Tasmanian forests as a microcosm of a global question, the Forest Economics Congress will bring together leaders, innovators and thinkers from across economics, industry, ecology, community (regional and First Nations) and policy to consider the true value of forests.

    Delegates will consider a wealth of topics—such as natural capital, enhanced livelihoods, community and regional development, investment opportunities, land use planning and management, biodiversity protection, culture and tourism—and how they can advance opportunities for Tasmania.


    120 delegates, 3 days, 1 museum, 1 question.


    Hosted by Mona, for a curated experience like no other.
