 The seminar 2011 will emphasise these specific themes above but papers on other
topics are also welcome. For instance as the seminar will be in forestry Finland
and the privat  forestry is close to Finnish agriculture and farmers,
the extension experience, advisory work evaluation about farming and forestry
together are most welcome. Floods, fire, dry, wars, tsunami
If you have more suggestions for the topics to be covered after this very demanding
natural disaster time to the farming and extension, please write us about them.

During the seminar, some tecnical visits to institutions involved in training and
teaching extension and some historical places will be organized.
