This blog is a travel journal for the participants of the Faculty-led study abroad program “The forest sector’s contribution to sustainability of the built environment in Alpine Europe”.

The built environment within which we live, study, and work has a significant environmental impact. With this short-term study program we want to explore the sustainability of the built environment following the value chain of wooden buildings starting in the forest and following through manufacturing, construction, and use of various types and designs of buildings. We will discover traditions and innovations of forest practices and building constructions along our route in Alpine Europe.

Use these pages to talk about yourself, your motivations for this trip, your expectations, reflections, logbook pages…
