Den 23 September deltar

Olle Forshed, Expert regnskog och tropiskt skogsbruk på WWF, och

Tomas Nilsson, Lärare vid Werklund School of Agriculture Technology, Olds College




Olle Forshed

Olle wants to save the rainforests! These magical and beautiful places contain so much life in different forms, and stand for so much of adventure and discovery for humans.

This is how he has felt since he read his first Tarzan magazine. They just must remain! This conviction took him to study forests (Jägmästare) at SLU, from which he graduated in 1999.

After some years, he continued at SLU as a PhD-student, with studies in rainforest management and ecology, and graduated in 2006.  Olle has since 2010 worked at WWF Sweden with a number of different projects linked to rainforests and their inhabitants. Olle Forshed was awarded SLU Alumnus of the year in 2013.
