The European Commission is organising a conference to analyse and discuss opportunities and challenges for enhancing the contribution of the forest sector to the main EU priorities.

The forest sector has indeed the potential to provide sustainable solutions to current and future societal challenges that concern all EU citizens, such as combating climate change, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels, promoting the circular bioeconomy, protecting biodiversity, and enhancing natural resources.

High-level speakers will include Phil Hogan, Commissioner for agriculture and rural development, Arias Cañete, Commissioner for climate action and energy, Ioan Deneş, Romanian Minister for water and forests, and high representatives of the private sector, academia, civil society, and non-governmental organisations.
