Forest Education Initiative Forest School participants discuss mini-shelters' designs with rest of group

The Forest Education Initiative provides learning resources about trees, woodlands and forest products and brings an understanding and appreciation to young people of the environmental, social, and economic potential of trees, woodlands and forests.  The practical work of FEI is achieved through local cluster groups – which include people involved in woodland ownership, management and related timber industries. These cluster groups offer teachers and leaders facilities for developing activity-based programmes based on trees, forests and wood products in their locality.
