I n accordance with this slogan, the organisators of this years „ Forest WE“ have immerged the visitors into a thousand-year-old connection between humans and forests.

Forests produce oxygen and contribute to carbon storage. Forests are important habitats for multiple species of fauna and flora. Forests attract visitors in search of recreation and a growing range of leisure activities. Forests can be managed and harvested to produce forest biomass, which can be made into a wide range of products. Forests offer important opportunities for job creation. Forests are multifuntional.
