Thank You for Your Support on FSC Friday
Celebrating FSC Friday during a pandemic was certainly much different to previous years, but we are extremely grateful to everyone who joined in to share their commitment to FSC.
Forests for All Together was our theme this year to celebrate the importance of bringing people together to responsibly care for forests. We are grateful that many certificate holders, certification bodies, members, and charities joined us in celebrating FSC Friday last week. This included:
- Forestry England, The Woodland Trust, Soil Association, Interface NRM, Kingfisher, and The Timber Trade Federation promoting sustainably managed forests,
- Support from the Welsh Conservatives,
- An FSC Friday video by Andrew Kinsey,
- Articles written by certificate holder James Cropper (FSC®C009165) and Ahmarra (FSC®C018847),
- George Barnsdale (FSC®C021044) kept up the tradition of celebrating FSC Friday with cake!
- Hurst school pupils exploring forests.
In the afternoon, we hosted our Annual Members’ Meeting, where we were joined by our Board of Directors, UK FSC Members, FSC UK staff, Kim Carstensen (FSC Director General), and Peter Wilson (Chair of UKWAS standard-setting working group). The meeting included the launch of our 2019-20 Annual Review, an update on FSC’s global strategy, and an overview of FSC’s work with UKWAS.
If you would like to share your FSC Friday content with us, or have any feedback on this year's campaign, please e-mail Danielle (firstname.lastname@example.org).·
