Each year England's Community Forests host a national conference to discuss the progress community forestry is making, identify issues and develop opportunities. Our 2018 conference will be held at the Birmingham Midland Institute on Tuesday 20th March.
We have lots to discuss: with the launch of the Year Plan for Environment, the conference provides an opportunity to look at what is happening now in England's Community Forests and what, on the back of the 25 year Plan, we might aim to do in the future.
We have great speakers and the workshop will be lively as usual - maybe more so this year! We'll spend some time after lunch looking at social media: "Megaphone or conversation? Tips and strategies for social media, and where is it all heading?" This will be led by Steve Connor, Creative Concern.
Once again, we are delighted that our conference chair will be Sir Harry Studholme, Forestry Commission Chairman.
Places are limited.Tickets are available at a cost of just under £25 (inc fees and VAT).
