We are delighted to invite you to the joint event of EUSTAFOR and CEPF (Confederation of EU Forest Owners) “European Forests: Hotspots of Biodiversity”, hosted by MEP Adam Jarubas and MEP Jessica Polfjärd. The event will take place on Tuesday, 17 March 2020 (13:30 – 17:30) in the European Committee of the Regions (Room VMA 1), Rue Van Maerlant 2, Brussels.

Forests are an important part of the European landscape and crucial for reaching the objectives of the European Green Deal. Sustainable and active forest management will play a key role in meeting the EU’s long-term biodiversity and climate objectives, by maintaining and enhancing the long-term health of forest ecosystems.

This joint event will offer an insight into sustainable forest management practices, which includes environmental conservation. Daily operations of sustainable forest management aim to ensure that our forests maintain biodiversity, remain resilient and continue to serve society’s multiple environmental, economic and socio-cultural expectations.

The joint event will focus on the future vision of sustainable forest management in Europe and different approaches to be considered when addressing common efforts in maintaining and enhancing our forests’ biodiversity. What are those approaches and what measures are needed at EU level to ensure that our forests continue to be hotspots of biodiversity?

Please find attached the draft agenda and more information about the event.
