Community woodland events

The latest community woodland events, as well as useful conferences, training and meetings.

People and Forests, Wales and the Planet – Panel Discussion

Sunday 21 March, 4pm 

Llais y Goedwig will be taking part in the WOW Film Festival! We’ll be bringing the voices of community woodland groups from around Wales and exploring what you can do if you’re inspired to connect with your local woodland.

“With the climate emergency, everyone is talking about trees. But is it better to create new woodlands, or protect ancient forests? How are Welsh communities caring for woods? What can Wales do to prevent deforestation in the rest of the world? Join this panel discussion to celebrate the UN’s International Day of Forests. Learn to love forests!”

In the lead-up to the discussion WOW will be showing the magical film The Hidden Life of Trees.

Book your free space on the WOW website.

Note that this event is not organised by Llais y Goedwig and is open to everyone.

Sharing a Woodland – challenges, opportunities and creative solutions!

Wednesday 31st March,  3.30-5.00pm

Many woodlands have multiple users on their paths, cyclists, walkers, even horse and quad bikes can be sharing space. Generally users respect each other’s needs, but sometimes conflict and tension arises, especially during lockdown as we are all forced to take fresh air and exercise close to home. This has had great benefits, with people discovering local nature spots for the first time, but it also brings heavier use and competition in places.

This 1.5 hour session is a chance to look at how some member groups have dealt with this conflict and found positive workable solutions for everyone, and a chance to look at solutions for a challenge in your woods, with the help of others. We will run member presentations followed by facilitated question and answer session in small groups.

You will be sent a zoom link with details of how to join in when you’ve booked your place.
