European Forest Week 2017 and the European Forest Week art contest. Warsaw-Poland

Sunday, July 09 , 2017 829

The fourth European Forest Week will take place 9-13 October 2017.  It will be held in conjunction with Las2017 (‘las’ means ‘forest’ in Polish), the Joint Session of the UNECE Committee of Forests and the Forest Industry (COFFI) and the FAO European Forestry Commission (EFC). European Forest Week will take place in Warsaw, where Las2017 will be hosted by the Government of Poland.

 

The first European Forest Week was celebrated in 2008 and ever since has provided a unique opportunity for participants to increase the forest sector’s visibility and to influence pan-European and global discussions related to forests. Interested stakeholders are encouraged to contribute and organize national and local celebrations.
