The Yale Forest Forum (YFF) was established in 1994 by a diverse group of leaders in forestry to focus national attention on forest policy and management in the United States. The group convened the Seventh American Forest Congress to collaboratively develop and articulate a common vision of forest management to diverse stakeholders. The Yale Forest Forum is now the convening body of the Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry. Through YFF, the Institute holds events at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies involving stakeholders from all sectors.
The Global Institute’s Yale Forest Forum Leadership Seminar Lunch Series is YFF’s weekly gathering, providing opportunities to hear from leaders in forest management, conservation, or policy in an informal setting. The YFF speaker series is the longest continuously running speaker series at F&ES. Speakers come from a wide range of organizations and perspectives, including government, NGOs and businesses, working at scales from local to international.
Lunches take place Thursdays at noon, in Marsh Hall, 360 Prospect Street.
