Présentation

Forests are one of the few areas that concentrate so many functions: recreational area, wood production, biodiversity reserve, protection of groundwater. Today, the forest-wood sector is at the crossroads of many issues.

On the one hand, the forest is one of the places where the consequences of climate change are expressed (storms, dieback, parasite crises) but also of a new interest on the part of citizens who are mobilising to defend it (fight against the felling of trees) and see it as a source of well-being.

On the other hand, the professional forestry sector is a source of solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change: the forest is a carbon reserve that needs to be maintained, wood is a naturally renewable material (stores carbon, replaces materials derived from fossil resources, renewable and natural energy source).

Finally, the urbanisation of our societies is leading to a growing disconnection between the places of production and consumption of wood products, leading to misunderstandings between the various stakeholders, who need to be brought together.

Maintaining the dialogue, better articulating the production activities of the forestry and wood sector and the social acceptability of these practices are at the heart of the proposed programme.

Objectives of the course

The post-master programme Mastère spécialise® in Territorial Mediation, CSR and the Forestry and Wood Sector is a level 1 qualification (bac+6) accredited by the Conférence des grandes écoles (CGE).

The diploma is awarded jointly by the ESB and Bordeaux Sciences Agro. The courses take place in Bordeaux, France.

The objective of this one-year programme is to train executives with a perfect command of the issues related to forests and wood, capable of dialogue, elaboration of consultation and environmental mediation processes in order to show and have taken into account the relations between all the stakeholders of the forestry world.

These skills can be implemented as part of the CSR approach of companies and organisations in the forestry and wood sector.

Graduates are trained to lead a collaborative process in the search for optimal management solutions for a forest ecosystem.

They are able to take charge of a group and put it into action around shared objectives with methods that favour a mixed and multi-skilled approach.

Finally, a systemic approach to the problems encountered accompanies the reflection and development of the trained professional.
