The increased heterogeneity of forest owners opens up for new perspectives and needs with regards to forest planning and decision-making. Also, the increasing distance between the owner and the property emphasise the digital opportunities, new decision-making processes and services. What aspects of the forest is important for different types of forest owner’s decision-making and how can this be implemented in the design of new services and support?
The project Rikare skog (Prosperous Forest) explores service development within the forest-based sector of Kvarken regions (Västerbotten, Västernorrland and Österbotten) and how this could contribute to e.g. improved value creation, inclusion and decision-making.
This webinar presents three new, or developing, cases on decision-making services. Two of them constitute pilots initiated and developed within the project. One on incorporating carbon-budget in the forest management plan and one on a plan for self-empowered learning on forest and ownership goals. The third presentation will provide insight to how open forest data cna be used by forest owners from a Finnish perspective.
The aim of the webinar is to showcase a variation of practical examples of new and potential services to initiate a discussion on developments, needs and the future of forest owner decision-making. One size does not fit all – and with regards to for ownership – on service and decision-making support/planning does not fully fit all. But in terms of services focused on decision-making/planning, what is missing and what can be developed? What can we learn from the Finnish and Swedish experiences and practices?
The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion where the participants can pose questions and discuss with the presenters. The webinar is held in English, but it will be possible to also ask questions in Finnish or Swedish. Welcome!
