International Forestry and Global Issues 2021

End 2021 Nancy, France

Lorraine is located in the north-east of France, between Champagne and Alsace. It is a beautiful region of woods, rolling plains and mountains, including the Vosges mountains to the East. Large forest areas cover Lorraine, with mainly braod-leaved forests in the plains (oaks and beeches) and coniferous forests in the mountains (silver fir, scots pine and spruce).

Nancy is a very active city with its University (Université de Lorraine) and probably the oldest school for forestry in Europe, founded in 1826, called AgroParisTech-Nancy.
