07-08/11/2019, in Eberswalde, Germany
Our volunteer Rebecca Hollely organised an interactive symposium around the theme of beech forests, with local speakers from several EU environmental projects, and international guest speakers from the European Beech Forest Network. There were workshops and open dialogue about the current situation of beech forests, and case studies from many European regions. They shared stories, experiences, good practices, and solutions to real problems faced in the forests, and engage in lively discussions about the future of beech forest and the role that cohesion policy plays in its continuance.
On the second day, they visited the beech forest Grumsin, which is an internationally important forest. They were guided through the forest and had the opportunity to reinforce and experience everything they discussed during the first day.
They finished informed and inspired to make positive changes for beech forests!
