Do you know what forest scientists look like? Here are four Phd students in forest science at SLU Alnarp in Skåne, photographed for NYKS’s Equaliy Calendar 2022: Hanna Bernö, Mostarin Ara, Ida Nordström and Amanda de Castro Segtowich.

My inspiration for this photo was the very popular TV trope commonly called ”cool guys casually walking away from explosions”.

A look I think matches their unflinching and decisive collective quote for the calendar:

»Especially now, when climate change causes increasingly unpredictable extreme weather events, which the forest will suffer from, it feels like a privilege as researchers to be able to provide the industry with solutions.«
