New UEF Round Table Meeting in Brussels 10th March 2020

Sunday, February 09 , 2020 60

UEF will organize its new Round Table Meeting in the European Forestry House in Brussels, on 10 March 2020.

UEF is organizing a Round Table Meetings every year in Brussels since more than 25 years.

 

This new one is organized  in cooperation and partnership with EUSTAFOR – European State Forest Association and FECOF - European Federation of Forest-Owning Communities.

 

The main stakeholders in forestry will attend this meeting about this really interesting topic:

”Social perception of forests and image of foresters”

 

While the forest policy discussions on European level are almost exclusively focused on issues related to climate change, the bioeconomy and the protection of forests and forest biodiversity, the way sustainable forest management is perceived by society seems to be of increasing importance.

 

 

A keynote presentation by Christine Farcy,  will open the discussions.

Christine Farcy, responsible for International forest policy in the Wallonie region Public Service (Belgium) and associated teacher at the University of Louvain (Begium),  has dealt with the perceptions, uses and the importance of forests.

 

Following the informal discussions a networking lunch will be offered.

 

 

UEF is actively engaged in the process to understand better the perception of forests and foresters by European citizens, all over Europe.

More information on our website after the meeting.
