The conference included a full-day field trip to Parque das Neblinas

The field trip took participants to see eucalyptus managed to supply wood for furniture, areas of restoration and discuss ecosystems services and FSC certification.

In operation for more than 10 years, the reserve is recognised by UNESCO's Man and Biosphere Program as an outpost of the São Paulo's Green Belt Biosphere Reserve [Posto Avançado da Reserva da Biosfera do Cinturão Verde da Cidade de São Paulo].
