TreeNNOVA: From Nature to Business

It is an intensive 4-day course called TreeNNOVA: From Nature to Business taking place from 2-5 December in Madrid.

The approach of this course is to engage people into the development of initiatives based on the sustainable use of forest and natural products and services, as a way to combat climate change.
