Forest Academy for EU Decision Makers

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

The programme consists of seminar sessions, field excursions, discussions and network building. The working language is English. After the two pilot events, the next Forest Academy forum is being planned for 2023.

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

The event utilises the Forest Academy communication tool created by the Finnish Forest Association.
