Forests are no longer regarded as simply factories for wood production. A wide range of multiple forest uses have become of increasing concern for society – from the regional to global scale. In this regard, the environmental and social concerns of many nations overlap. Likewise, the operations of forest companies increasingly cut-across national borders. Today’s forest sector thereby requires specialists possessing a broad knowledge base and international perspective.
To respond to these needs, the Euroforester programme has been developed in cooperation between 14 forest faculties in Europe. With guidance provided by an international research and teaching team, Euroforester courses include numerous study trips in Sweden and abroad.
UN's sustainable development goals in the education

Graduates of the Euroforester program at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences are very competitive in the job market. Within a few years of graduation many are already employed in important positions with a variety of organisations, ranging from the forest owner associations in Sweden, to Greenpeace in Russia, to multinational companies operating worldwide. Euroforesters actively maintain their international network of peers through graduate conferences held every 3 years that rotate among the participating countries.
