Website’s logo and slogan
A broad-leaf in three colours of the Initiative 16+1: red, blue and yellow, represents broad-leaf deciduous trees in temperate forests, common to the Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and beyond. Inclined three leaves represent present situation in the world we are facing with namely, climate change which is likely to affect the growth rate, the scope of the distribution of forests and certain pests or even the frequency and intensity of extreme meteorological phenomena. Therefore the climate changes remain the challenge for forester and forest sustainable management.
Under the slogan “new green syntheses”, the coordination mechanism for cooperation in forestry allows for the directed and integrated cooperation of international and domestic stakeholders from public and private forestry and forest-wood chain sector with the sectors of agriculture, food, the environment, education and tourism.
The web page will be the focal point of each countries forestry sector and will allow for a targeted search of the business and research communities in respective sectors.Back
