Climate Change Award 2014 case studies

Climate Change Award 2014 case studies

Following the successful launch by the Royal Forestry Society (RFS) of the Woodland Climate Change Award in 2014, a series of case studies have been released by the RFS. The award was supported by the Sylva Foundation, whose CEO Gabriel Hemery acted as judge and authored the case studies.

t20Q the story so far

The T20Q project offers an opportunity for everyone involved in forestry, agriculture and landscapes to identify the priority areas for future, high-quality research – and, ultimately, for policy.

Already we’ve received nearly 2000 questions, but the more questions we receive the better: we will have a richer mix of voices, a broader perspective on people’s priorities, and more robust evidence in the future.

Completing the survey will take just 15 minutes of your time: http://forestryevidence.com/t20q/

British Woodlands Survey 2014 - find out more and take part

British Woodlands Survey 2014 – find out more and take part

The latest British Woodlands Survey (BWS2014) has launched today and we welcome input from woodland owners and managers.

BWS2014 focusses on ancient woodland, planted ancient woodland sites (PAWS). Following on from BWS2012, this latest survey is exploring current management practices and attitudes towards ancient woodland. The project, jointly co-ordinated by the Sylva Foundation and the Woodland Trust, with funding support from Heritage Lottery, is part of a broader project on Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites (PAWS) and ancient woodland.

The survey, available in Welsh and English, is not limited to owners who know they have PAWS or ancient woodland but is open to all woodland owners and managers who have an interest in woodland management.

If you took part in BWS2012, and asked to be kept in touch with future national surveys we will be sending you an email asking you to participate again. The survey is much shorter than BWS2012 and builds on some of the information we received then. We were delighted with the huge survey response in 2012 (1600 respondents) and we hope to match that again in 2014 so that we collect the views of as wide a cross-section of owners and managers as possible – voices that are perhaps often missing in policy discussions in our sector.

We do hope that you will join – or rejoin – and take part !

bienvenue à T20Q

bienvenue à T20Q

Nous souhaitons encourager le plus de personnes possibles à participer et à alimenter la discussion sur les thématiques les plus importantes pour la recherche et les choix politiques

Participez à la conversation!

Ne vous limitez pas dans vos réflexions : quel que soit l’élément important pour vous dans la forêt ou les arbres des paysages, nous voulons le connaître.

 

bienvenido a T20Q

bienvenido a T20Q

Deseamos animar a tantas personas como sea posible a participar de las deliberaciones sobre cuáles son los temas más importantes para la investigación y las políticas.

Únase a la conversación!

Piense en términos generales: si algún aspecto de la silvicultura o los árboles en el paisaje es importante para usted, queremos escucharlo.

We have received almost 1300 questions to the T20Q project, covering a very wide range of topics, from people in 79 different countries.

A third of those who have participated have been women and 20% have been under the age of 30. Forestry has often been criticised for being heavily reliant on the views of older men, so this level of participation from younger people and women is terrific, and we encourage yet more to join the conversation.

We have received questions from people working in forestry, agriculture, landscapes and combinations of these three – researchers, policy-makers, educators and practitioners – and we are particularly keen to hear from more people in smaller organisations and the business sector.

Have you important questions that you think researchers and policy makers should listen to? Is your country or region well represented so far? Do join the conversation! Read about T20Q and submit your questions online
