FSC General Assembly to be held in October 2017 | Vancouver, Canada
The next FSC General Assembly will take place from 8th to 13th October 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.
Held every three years, the event aims to gather FSC international members to discuss the challenges and solutions of responsible forest management, and the future direction of the organization.
The FSC General Assembly 2017 will be the 8th assembly of members in the history of the organization. The first general assembly took place in 1996 in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Members submit motions months before the general assembly begins. Motions are then discussed and debated, before being voted on by all delegates.
To give an equal say to these different voices, FSC membership is divided into three different chambers – environmental, social and economic, which are further split into sub-chambers of global North and South. Voting on the motions is based on the three-chamber system, with equal voting power given to each chamber.
