SIP Knowledge Summit

Vancouver, BC
About the Knowledge Summit
Our primary goal of the Knowledge Summit is to foster collaboration among practitioners and knowledge holders to address British Columbia’s most urgent silviculture challenges. By bringing these experts together, we aim to analyze the current state of knowledge of innovative silviculture in BC, and co-create research and extension priorities. Furthermore, we are dedicated to elevating voices and perspectives that are often overlooked in traditional forestry forums. We believe that by amplifying these voices, we can create a more inclusive and well-rounded approach to tackling the challenges at hand. In addition to this, we are committed to establishing a resilient network of practitioners and knowledge holders who will not only develop innovative solutions but also carry them forward into practice and implementation. Through this network, we hope to inspire positive change and usher in a new era of innovative silviculture practices in British Columbia.
Key outcomes of the summit
  1. Clarify a common understanding of silviculture innovation
  2. Co-create a synthesis of the current state of knowledge – what do we know, what do we not know
  3. Establish a prioritized list of future research and extension needs – what do we need to know/need to communicate
Additional outcomes of the summit include
  • Relationships and networking to help lay the foundation for communities of practice
  • Education opportunities for diverse practitioners
  • Tangible opportunities to show reciprocity and knowledge exchange with Indigenous knowledge holders and communities.
