The Future We Want: The Forests We Need

This intergovernmental summit subtitled “The Future We Want: The Forests We Need”, was aimed to take political commitments by countries in Europe and the European Union on strategic framework and actions towards sustainable forest management in Europe for this decade.

The Eighth FOREST EUROPE Ministerial Conference was planned to be organized in October 2020 in Bratislava, Slovakia, and later it was postponed due to the pandemic of COVID 19. However, as the physical distancing regulations and constraints, related to the pandemic, were expected to continue to impact the work of the international community also through the first half of 2021, the Ministerial Conference was held in a virtual format on the dates 14 and 15 April 2021.
