A free massive online learning course (MOOC), providing an introduction to continuous cover forestry, covering the various aspects of this forestry approach over an 8-week period, beginning 16th October 2023.
The ForestMoocForChange is a new collaborative project, co-financed by the European Union, between four European forestry development agencies involved in close-to-nature forestry development: Die Arbeitsgemeinschaft Naturgemäße Waldwirtschaft (ANW) in Germany, Pro Silva France, Teagasc Forestry Development Department in Ireland and Forêt-Nature in Belgium as lead partner.
The aim of the project is to help overcome initial challenges and provide new tools to facilitate the transformation of Europe’s forests towards continuous cover systems as a way to optimise production of quality wood, biodiversity, the protection of ecosystem services and enhanced resilience.
The course includes numerous videos produced in the field by experts, managers and owners. Each week, a live meeting will be organised with the speakers enabling participants to ask questions and discuss the subject covered. From discovering how continuous cover works and its dynamics, to questions of an economic, ecological or social nature, the MOOC is designed to be comprehensive and aimed at everyone.
