2nd TitleForest Foresight Unit
CreatorForesight Unit, University of Eastern Finland
DescriptionThe Foresight Unit of the University of Eastern Finland (2008-2011) carries out foresight studies on the forest sector and factors affecting it. Studies also focus on the more scarcely-reported aspects, e.g. addressing consumer behaviour and social change. The main goal is to promote forest and wood based businesses and to support decision making in the forest sector. The Unit is based on work started in the Future Forum on Forests (2003-2008), which contributed stimuli for foreseeing scenarios in the forest-based livelihoods in Finland towards 2020 as part of the National Forest Programme 2015 update.
