Cities4Forests is hosting a participatory exploration of the latest thinking and research on sustainable wood for city projects.

This online event will bring experts together to discuss a defining question of today’s urban sustainability: How can we better define sustainable wood and integrate this into city procurement? The panel will investigate the Sustainable Wood for Cities platform as a vehicle to dive into various pathways for sustainable wood sourcing. The second part of the session will be an open discussion and Q&A with city representatives and industry experts to exchange knowledge on sustainable wood procurement. Our goal is that all participants come away with better questions and a new capacity to engage in climate smart urbanization and forest conservation.
