England's Community Forests Annual Conference 2020 | Birmingham & Midland Institute | Thursday, 26. March 2020

England's Community Forests are within reach of more that 50% of the population. With local communities we have planted more than 16m new trees over the past 25 years.
 
Millions of people use and enjoy the new and growing forests that have been created. They provide a wide range of benefits for people and wildlife, as well as setting the scene for growth and jobs.
 
In 2020 our annual conference focuses on trees and carbon. With trees in the media almost daily and new targets and aspirations for new woodland creation to lock up carbon as a reponse to climate change, what is the role of Community Forests in helping to achive these new targets? What is the role of trees and woodlands in mitigating the likley impacts of climate change? How quickly can we respond to the challenge of a dramatic increase in levels of planting?
 
We have great speakers and the workshop will undoubtedly be lively as usual.
 
Places are limited so please book are available at £30 (plus fees £32.63) to cover refreshments and the cost of room hire.
