08. September 2021
13-15 CET / 14-16 EEST

Input: Anne Matilainen (University of Helsinki): Feelings of psychological ownership towards forests

With the “Scientific Coffee” sessions we – that is, the junior research group ,flumen´ and the research project ,Human-forest relationship in Societal Change’ – pursue our cooperation and exchange on the relations between society, humans and forests that we started with the workshop “Contested Society-Nature-Relations. Forest related Emotions, Practices & Conflicts in Times of Societal Change” in May 2021.

The Scientific Coffee HFR starts with our colleague Anne Matilainen from the University of Helsinki who is researching the concept of psychological ownership in the context of forests. More information about her academic work you find here.

Anne will give a short introduction to the concept of psychological ownership and her research. With coffee and cookies at hand, we will have plenty of room for an open discussion and exchange. The scientific coffee will take place online on zoom.

We warmly invite you to join the 1st “Scientific Coffee HFR” session if you are interested in the research about Human Forest Relationships or are even active in the field yourself.

If you want to join, please contact: and a Zoom link will be sent to you shortly before the session.

The “Scientific Coffee HFR” sessions give room for open and relaxed discussions on current research subjects related to human and society relations to forests. They take place as often as we find the time to organise another session – but at least one session per semester is planned.

If you are interested in contributing to the next “Scientific Coffee HFR”, please contact with info on your subject (title and short abstract) and a preferred Wednesday (13-15 CET / 14-16 EEST).
