A dendrochronological workshop entitled “Tree growth rings and the past of trees” was developed for Secondary School students. In this activity, the students discovered that trees store much more information than they were able to imagine and how it is possible to learn about the climate of past centuries or the effects of climate change through the tree rings.
A second activity, an open Science fair was held to give visibility to the research work carried out by the Sustainable Forest Management Research Institute (iuFOR). This activity aimed to bring the work developed at iuFOR closer to the rest of the university community and society in general so that they can learn about forestry research, the importance of science and the impact on environmental companies. In this way, several stands were established where the different research fields were explained to interested people. In addition, information was provided on the possibility of obtaining contracts and scholarships.
