European State Forest Conference 2016

Forest Management for People, Nature and Economy in England's largest and most visited National Park

Hosted by the Forestry Commission in the Lake District, United Kingdom
21-23 June 2016

This year, the European State Conference takes place in The Lake District National Park - England's largest National Park (covers 229,200 hectares).

This year’s conference, “Forest Management for People, Nature and Economy in England's largest and most visited National Park” will unfold a true understanding of how The Forestry Commission operates within a sensitive environment of a National Park.

The Lake District National Park remains a precious resource and a highly designated landscape, which attracts thousands of visitors every year. But it is also a living landscape where forest management plays an important part in sustaining employment and stimulating economic prosperity.

The conference will feature:
• The Forestry Commission’s mission for the Public Forest Estate - based on collaboration: safe guarding and managing forests for wildlife to thrive, people to enjoy and businesses to flourish.
• Presentation of forest management in a busy tourist destination
• Excursions around the Lake District to give conference delegates a true understanding of operating within this unique National Park
• Networking opportunities
• A Eustafor 10 year anniversary celebration

Please bring appropriate clothing for all weather conditions – clothing and footwear suitable for wet, windy and cold conditions and also for hot and sunny conditions. Outdoor footwear is required.

Dress for evening dinners: smart casual.
