The EU Forest Strategy for 2030 has the goal to establish a new forest governance framework in the European Union. Given the crucial role of forests in achieving European Green Deal objectives, the European Commission recognised the need of an inclusive and coherent EU forest governance structure, that can reflect the goals of the new EU Forest Strategy.

The active involvement of forest owners and managers, environmental NGOs, industry, academia, and the broader civil society is crucial for the success of these efforts.

Therefore, building on the experience of the Civil Dialogue Group on Forestry and Cork and the Working Group on Forest and Nature, the Commission intends to establish a single stakeholder platform (an expert group called ‘Forest and Forestry Stakeholder Platform’) to assist with the work of DG Agriculture and Rural Development, DG Environment, and DG Climate Action in the implementation of the EU Forest Strategy for 2030.

The call for applications to be selected as a member of this group is open until 17 February!
