There is growing evidence that nature and in particular forests contribute to physical and mental well-being and can significantly improve human health.

In order to further investigate this issue, the IUFRO Global Forest Expert Panel (GFEP) on Forests and Human Health will organise a webinar on 21 March at 15h CET to present and discuss the key messages of its latest assessment on this topic. This year, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests chose the theme “forests and health” for the International Day of Forests, so the commemorative day goes hand in hand with the launch of this report.

Join to hear first-hand this comprehensive assessment of the scientific evidence on the complex relationship between forests and human health, highlighting the response options available to utilise synergies and address trade-offs.

The webinar will be in English, and the PDF version of the report will be available on the IUFRO website.
