The goal of this regular Association for Fire Ecology zoom meeting is to provide a platform for student and early career professionals to meet, to get better connected as a community, and to be inspired by a diversity of leaders from centers of fire excellence, including academic, management, international, and NGOs.
Every Zoom meeting will be centered around a 30-45 minute interactive educational presentation from a fire science or management leader(s) and from fire centers of excellence. You can view recordings of past webinars here.
