New Centre for Sustainable Forests and Landscapes Taking Shape

03 March 2017

ECCI was the venue for the first gathering of stakeholders set to launch the new University of Edinburgh Centre for Sustainable Forests and Landscapes in Summer 2017.

The aim of the event was to inform stakeholders of plans and to listen to feedback and ideas that will help collectively shape and develop the centre for maximimum impact in Scotland, the UK and internationally.

The centre aims to work with and inform sustainable practices in industry, the public sector and community organisations; provide executive and short course training; produce skilled graduates; support decision making by forest investors and managers; and provide evidence and analysis to support forest policy development and implementation by governments and agencies around the world.

Look out for more news about the new Centre in the lead up to the launch this summer.
