forests Mushroom Farming Finland, FOODLEVERS-project
Mushroom Farming Finland, FOODLEVERS-project
14 Jun 2024
European Forest Institute
In this video, Erkki Pöytäniemi explains how mushroom cultivation works in practice. Forest cultivation of shiitake mushrooms makes efficient use of forestry by-products such as small-diameter low value trees from thinning which are normally used as bioenergy or pulp trees. These tree logs can also be used as a cultivation substrate for shiitake mushrooms (and also other mushroom species such as chaga, reishi (also known as lingzhi) and oyster mushrooms) and in this case the added value per tree log can be markedly higher. Another advantage is that forests which are normally only used for wood production, now also produce edible mushrooms. In this way, forest farming can be an ecologically friendly way of food production as it increases land use efficiency. This video was produced in the context of the FOODLEVERS project which ran in 2020-2024. Find out more about the project at https://www.foodlevers.org/

Get to know our Ally, Finland 🇫🇮 #shorts
6 Jun 2024
NATO
Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, against the backdrop of its illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014, changed the security landscape in Europe and acted as a catalyst for Finland’s accession to NATO. After 30 years of close partnership with NATO, Finland joined the Alliance as a new member in April 2023. With its geographic proximity to Russia, Finland shares a 1,300-km border with Russia and has a history of facing Russian aggression. Russia’s unprovoked and brutal full-scale war on Ukraine got Finland to rethink its defence strategy, and abandon its policy of military non-alignment. While Finland now benefits from the protection of NATO membership and the collective defence clause (“one for all, all for one”) under Article 5 of NATO’s founding treaty (also called the Washington Treaty), Finland’s membership also strengthens NATO’s collective deterrence and defence and the security of the Euro-Atlantic area. Despite having a small population of 5.5 million, Finland has an impressive wartime strength of 280,000 military personnel, and that is due to its comprehensive conscription service. The country also counts on strong artillery capabilities, a fleet of modern fighter jets, powerful mine hunting capabilities at sea and much more. Finland is also situated in a potentially vulnerable area, including both the High North and the Baltic Sea, regions of high strategic importance. In this video, we look at what NATO membership means for Finland, and how the country contributes to the security of our Alliance.

On the occasion of the UNFCCC COP 28 in Dubaï (United Arab Emirates), the 4 per 1000 Initiative: Soils for Food Security held the 6th 4 per 1000 Initiative Day on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022, in the Dubaï Dusit Conference Hall. The International Initiative 4 per 1000, launched by France on December 1st, 2015, at the COP 21, consists of federating all voluntary stakeholders of the public and private sectors (national governments, local and regional governments, companies, trade organizations, NGOs, research facilities, etc.) under the framework of the Lima-Paris Action Plan (LPAP). The Initiative aims to demonstrate that agriculture, particularly agricultural soils, can play a crucial role in food security and climate change. Supported by solid scientific documentation, this initiative invites all partners to state or implement practical actions on soil carbon storage and the type of practices to achieve this (e.g., agroecology, agroforestry, conservation agriculture, landscape management, etc.). The initiative encourages stakeholders to transition towards a productive, highly resilient agriculture based on the appropriate management of lands and soils, creating jobs and incomes, and ensuring sustainable development.

Any person who keeps any equines in the State will be required to submit a completed census return within a specified timeline. The census is designed to create an initial link between each equine kept in the State on census day and the premises where it is kept at that time. A profile of all equines present on a holding on that date will be created on the Department’s Animal Identification and Movement (AIM) system, which houses the central equine database. It is expected that the formal linking of equines to their keepers will increase compliance with equine legislation which places responsibility on the recorded keeper for ensuring the health and welfare of all animals in his/her care. Keepers who do not already have an agfood.ie account must register at www.agfood.ie to obtain personal login details to submit their census information. This should be done in advance of November by logging on to www.agfood.ie and choosing the option to ‘Register’.

security Finland's 🇫🇮 impact on NATO
Finland's 🇫🇮 impact on NATO
3 Oct 2023
NATO
Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, against the backdrop of its illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014, changed the security landscape in Europe and acted as a catalyst for Finland’s accession to NATO. After 30 years of close partnership with NATO, Finland joined the Alliance as a new member in April 2023. With its geographic proximity to Russia, Finland shares a 1,300-km border with Russia and has a history of facing Russian aggression. Russia’s unprovoked and brutal full-scale war on Ukraine got Finland to rethink its defence strategy, and abandon its policy of military non-alignment. While Finland now benefits from the protection of NATO membership and the collective defence clause (“one for all, all for one”) under Article 5 of NATO’s founding treaty (also called the Washington Treaty), Finland’s membership also strengthens NATO’s collective deterrence and defence and the security of the Euro-Atlantic area. Despite having a small population of 5.5 million, Finland has an impressive wartime strength of 280,000 military personnel, and that is due to its comprehensive conscription service. The country also counts on strong artillery capabilities, a fleet of modern fighter jets, powerful mine hunting capabilities at sea and much more. Finland is also situated in a potentially vulnerable area, including both the High North and the Baltic Sea, regions of high strategic importance. In this video, we look at what NATO membership means for Finland, and how the country contributes to the security of our Alliance. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ SUBSCRIBE to this channel https://bit.ly/NATOsubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO News https://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO History https://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribe Connect with NATO online: Visit the Official NATO Homepage: https://bit.ly/NATOhomepage Receive NATO updates via email: https://bit.ly/NATOemails Find NATO on FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/NATOfacebook Follow @NATO on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/NATOtwitter Follow NATO on Instagram: https://bit.ly/NATOinstagram Find NATO on LinkedIn: https://bit.ly/NATOlinkedin Find NATO on Flickr: https://bit.ly/NATOflickr #NATO #Finland #Suomi #OTAN

Robots for ocean conservation: Combating pollution and preserving marine life
2 Oct 2023
AI for Good
Each year, a staggering 4.8 to 12.7 million tons of plastic invades our seas. Plastic debris poses a severe threat to marine life since it might cause the ingestion, suffocation, and entanglement of hundreds of marine species, or release toxic chemicals that endanger nearby organisms. At the forefront of climate clean-up, robots offer hope by removing hundreds of tons of plastics and other waste to keep oceans clean. Furthermore, autonomous machines can perform vital monitoring and research tasks, gathering samples of microbial life and filming underwater without disturbing the delicate environment. They provide essential data to better understand marine ecosystems, including coral reef recovery from bleaching or cyclones, marine organism behaviors, and the impact of climate change on the ocean. Join this AI for Good webinar to explore the potential of marine robots in documenting, understanding, and preserving marine biodiversity, working towards the goals for a healthy ocean by 2030.

Nearly 1,000 Ukrainian marines are heading back to Ukraine after being trained by NATO Allies: the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom. They have spent six months focusing on amphibious skills and tactics, conducting beach raids by day and night at various locations across the UK. Approximately 900 Ukrainian marines completed the course, which included instruction in the use of mortars, Next Generation Light Anti-Tank Weapons (NLAW) and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles, drones for reconnaissance, and explosive demolition of obstacles such as Dragon’s Teeth anti-vehicle fortifications. The course was the first such programme run by the UK Royal Marines Commandos following requests from Ukraine. The programme is part of Allies' commitment to helping Ukraine uphold its right to self-defence against Russia’s unprovoked war of aggression, as enshrined in the UN Charter.

Information Webinar concerning Plant Health with a particular focus on the recently reported outbreak of Oak Processionary Moth in Ireland. The webinar was held on 4th July 2023. 00:00 Plant Health in Ireland - NPPO, Strategy, Surveillance Programme 06:03 What is Oak Processionary Moth? Lifecycle, Signs and Symptoms 13:13 Oak Processionary Moth – the Irish Context 14:51 Current Policy – legislation 20:22 Previous Interception 21:21 Recent Outbreak 26:17 Guidance and Support 27:20 Questions and Answers Presenters: Deirdre Fay, Head of Division, Horticulture and Plant Health Division Joseph McNamara, Plant Health Inspector Robyn Earl, Entomologist On the 12th June 2023, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) announced a finding of Thaumetopoea processionea, commonly known as the Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) in Ireland. Oak Processionary Moth caterpillars were found on four Oak trees in a Dublin housing estate. The nests and four trees have been destroyed. Ireland has a Protected Zone status under the EU Plant Health legislation for this pest. A Protected Zone is an area of the EU which is free from a harmful organism. DAFM have commenced an investigation into this infestation. Surveying for this pest around the infected site has commenced and an intensive survey campaign using trapping methods and visual examinations of oak trees will continue over the coming weeks and months. The caterpillars (larvae) of this moth are mainly associated with feeding on the foliage of Oak (Quercus) tree species. However, when there are limited oak trees available, larvae have been observed to feed on other tree species (Acacia, Birch, Hornbeam, Hawthorn, Hazel and Beech) but it is uncertain whether they can survive on these species and complete their lifecycle development to adults. The caterpillars (larvae) feed on leaves and can cause severe defoliation leaving trees weakened and open to secondary infections from other pest and diseases. In addition, this moth also poses a potential risk for human health and animal health, as the body of the caterpillar is adorned with numerous irritating hairs. Contact with the hairs can provoke allergic reactions which manifest as skin rashes, conjunctivitis and respiratory problems such as pharyngitis and asthma. Suspected sightings in Ireland should be treated with extreme caution and notified immediately to DAFM with your contact details and geolocation of the sighting by emailing plantandpests@agriculture.gov.ie or by telephone 01-5058885. For any queries on this webinar or general plant health queries, please email plantandpests@agriculture.gov.ie https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/26813-plant-health-trade/?referrer=http://www.gov.ie/planthealth/

The final version of the TOM is expected to be published by the UK Government in June 2023. These new controls will have implications for all Irish exports to the United Kingdom, excluding Northern Ireland. In particular exports from the agri-food sector will subject to pre-notification and accompanied, in some cases, by export health and phyto-sanitary certificates. As per the Northern Ireland Protocol and Windsor Framework, there will be no changes to moving goods between Ireland and Northern Ireland. It is vital that impacted businesses speak to everyone in their supply chain including transport and logistics providers and customers in Great Britain to examine what adjustments will be needed to comply with the new UK requirements (such as ferry boarding formalities, the end of the delayed lodgement of customs declarations, pre-notification of SPS products, export health certificates etc) and ensure everyone understands their role in this new environment. https://gov.ie/agriculture/brexit https://gov.ie/brexit
