Lectures, presentations, master classes, research papers and online practical exercises did not leave indifferent any participant of the school.

“All lectures were selected very competently and in terms of topics.  For the first time I learned about innovations in the green economy here, there was a lot of information about environmental protection. There are no large forests in Uzbekistan, but we have reserves that need science-based protection. Thanks to the Summer School, we met many scientists. Thank you for organizing the program, which was at a high level,”wrote Shair Iskhakova, lecturer of the Department of Soil Science of the Biological Faculty of Mirzo Ulugbek National University of the Republic of Uzbekistan in her letter of thanks to KATU.

The summer school was a platform for the exchange and acquisition of new knowledge, the development of innovative technologies and methods for conducting scientific research in the field of forestry, ecology and wildlife, says Dani Sarsekova, Dean of the Faculty of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment. Many students expressed their sincere gratitude for the good organization, cognitive and innovative lectures and practical exercises.
