INTERREG IV B NWE ForeStClim Mid-term Conference "European Forestry - Fit for Climate Change?"

Striving towards the aim of transnationally harmonised forest management strategies in the face of climate change, the ForeStClim project endeavours since 2008 to form a platform for 21 organisations and uncounted individuals all over North West Europe (NWE). Now that ForeStClim is in an advanced stage of development, we are excited to invite to the project’s mid-term conference. Even though the title is clearly “European”, “European Forestry - Fit for Climate Change ?” is intended as an international conference.

The overall focus of the event is to have a results-driven meeting. It will provide the grounds for our ForeStClim partner organisations to show their progress made and milestones reached, but also the chance to discuss open and newly arisen topics with a wider audience. For participants outside the ForeStClim project it also provides a number of benefits

•  Participating in cutting-edge research in the field of forestry and climate change 

•  Presenting in front of a wide range of experts from all of North West Europe

•  Being noticed as a potential partner for future INTERREG or related projects


Three parallel, moderated workshops will be organised on the first afternoon of the conference:

•  Forests and Water 

•  Response of Trees to a Changing Climate 

•  Forest Management in the Face of Climate Change


Here, all delegates will have the chance to actively participate in the on-going scientific debates, exchange technical know-how, but also discuss possible consequences of the results gained.
