Linking sustainable practices throughout Europe

1st Forestry Workshop - March 2016 (GB)

1st Workshop on Sustainable Forest Management, 17-20 March 2016, Milverton, Somerset, South-West of England, UK

This workshop was conceived as the first of a planned series of workshops which together will address, in different locations in Europe, the issue of Sustainable Forest Management.

It was co-organised with EuCAN.
About 30 participants from 10 different European countries took part in this event. The aim was to raise awareness of the different services provided by sustainable forest management, and to understand what sustainable forestry means in practice. It included a half-day visit to a large private woodland in Exmoor National Park, in the company of officials from the National Park Authority and the Forestry Commission, followed by one and a half days of discussion.
