Convener: Forest Stewardship Council

Realising the potential of forests to address the climate crisis requires not only a new way to do business, but also a new relation with nature which values both the ecological and social dimensions of working forests, in particular the role of traditional and Indigenous communities as forest guardians. Now, in the face of a global climate emergency with the need for urgent actions, FSC is convening experts and partners to work with us to position forests at the center of climate action. This event will launch the FSC Climate Coalition, a multi-sector platform to co-create, guide, and test forest-based climate solutions.
