The Forest Olympics united 17 higher education institutions of Russia
The Olympics in sustainable forest management are a competitive form of students' educational and scientific work, in which they have the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge of forest disciplines, as well as show their ability to solve forestry tasks, make management decisions and perform calculations. In 2019, 988 students from 17 higher educational institutions of Russia, first of all, bachelors of forestry, became the participants of the Olympics.
The questions of the Olympics were differentiated by courses and included both basic sections of forestry and specific areas of knowledge related to forest certification, ecosystem functions and remote sensing technologies. Electronic testing was accompanied by illustrative material, for example, it was necessary to identify the plant species or the inventory devices in the photo, to analyze the flow chart, or name the organization by its logo.
