Overview of the event:

A three-day forum drawing together a wide variety of voices to explore a heritage of woodland and forest and look to their future. In celebration of the Forestry Commission’s centenary it looks back at the last 100 years and looks forward to the next.  We draw on the wisdom of foresters, environmental managers, policy-makers, scientists and other experts; we hear the voices of artists, designers, writers and philosophers; and we learn from others around the world about their own cultural connections to trees, and the wood that produces some of the world’s most beautiful objects.

This event incorporates the annual conference of RFS and our primary contribution to marking the Forestry Commission’s centenary. The event is produced by, renowned for their re-invention of the academic conference into something inclusive, collaborative, friendly, experiential and tactile.
