A global overview of the quality, processes and the effects of biking.


Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schraml // Forest Research Institute Baden-Wurttemberg

„Climate change is altering forests and challenging forestry operations in ways previously unknown. In the course of the so-called forest restructuring, special attention should be paid to the growing importance of forests for recreation and sports. This includes technical and organizational measures, but above all it means that explaining the ongoing measures and a successful dialogue with recreationalists of all activities must become core tasks of every forester.

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schraml shares his academic expertise on the forest, its importance as a recreational space and the threat to this ecosystem from climate change. We will benefit from his experience from political activities and advisory functions, as the eternal conflict between forest owners and mountain bikers will also be a topic of this lecture. Prof. Dr. Schraml will tell us ...
  • How to mediate between different stakeholders.
  • Why a recreational forest is important for society.
  • How mountain bikers can contribute to the preservation of our forests.
