In Woziwoda we give a special emphasis to education and to interaction with the general public. We aim at creating a better understanding for forest and their wide range of services. One example of our educational activities are those focusing on bees and pollinators. By these targeted animations we want to draw more attention to the importance of insects and especially bees in in forests. These activities are in line with a broader program "bees return to the forest" #pszczoływracajądolasu #pszczołyWlesie implemented by the Polish State Forests since 2018. Within this program foresters and beekeepers have established already 100 bee hives in living trees.
Green Jobs and Forest Education
We need skilled personnel to adapt European forests to climate change. The same goes for managing society's increasing demands for forest ecosystem services.
Yet, according to the latest State of Europe’s Forests report, there was a decrease in Green Jobs in the forest sector. Forest education and work opportunities along the whole value chain need to match. Because fitting education inspires new attractive job opportunities to many in the forest-based sector.
