Best Practice & Innovation – Skogkurs: Forestry Extension Institute (Norway)

Skogkurs aims to be the common body for competition in business development and management of forests and other land resources in Norway. Through its activities, Skogkurs contributes to increasing competition among actors in the forest industry, and to disseminating knowledge about forests and nature to schools and the public.

Skogkurs has 36 member organisations in Norway. “Active forestry” is a national offer with courses aimed at forest owners, forest workers and forest operators. The courses are also relevant for other groups that use forestry tools, either professionally or in their spare time.
