Each year England's Community Forests host a national conference to discuss the progress community forestry is making, identify issues and develop opportunities. Our 2017 conference will be held at the Birmingham Midland Institute on Thursday 23rd March.
We have lots to discuss: the loss of urban trees, addressing the need to reduce flood risk, health inequalities and adapt to climate change. Leaving Europe means that we are likely to have a very different system for forestry support: what might that look like? Our conference in 2017 focuses on how we can shape future policy for community forestry.
We have great speakers and the workshop will be lively as usual - maybe more so this year!
Once again, we are delighted that our conference chair will be Sir Harry Studholme, Forestry Commission Chairman.
Places are limited so please book early.Tickets are available at a cost of just under £25 (inc fees and VAT).
