Forest Academy for EU Decision Makers

The Forest Academy for EU Decision Makers is a discussion forum that focuses on the role of forests and the forest value chain in the development of a sustainable, circular bioeconomy. It is a three-day, intensive programme with thematically linked site visits that will demonstrate the effects of policy on the forest sector.

The programme consists of seminar sessions, field excursions, discussion and network building. The programme content is carried out in English. The event is by invitation only. After two consecutive pilot events, the next Forest Academy forum is now being planned for 2022.

The key idea of a Forest Academy for decision-makers at the EU is to offer possibilities to connect with other key decision-makers and to share insights on the opportunities that forests can offer to society.
