ThinkForest is a European high-level forum on the future of forests. It provides:

  • A unique science-policy interface
  • Inspiring and dynamic science-policy dialogue

ThinkForest works to identify information needs related to forest policy questions and build a common understanding of the problems at hand. By helping policy makers navigate through the wealth of information on offer and providing them with the best available expertise and the latest research-based information from the scientific community it enables informed decision making on strategic forest issues.

Chaired by former Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson, ThinkForest is a unique forum which helps to build bridges on pan-European forest and bioeconomy issues. Since 2012, 17 events have been held, attended by over 1000 people.
