Registration now open for conference ‘Bosland 10 years – Passion for Nature’


Bosland, the largest forest and nature project in Flanders, was launched ten years ago. It has maintained and enhanced core traditional forestry-related activities and successfully developed a wide range of innovative approaches with significant social and scientific benefits. Bosland is a true example of successful multifunctional territorial development and integrated forest governance.

To celebrate Bosland’s tenth anniversary, a three-day landmark conference is being organized: Passion for Nature – Integrated Governance: Mainstreaming Opportunities for Nature & Society

Date: 12 to 14 October 2016
Location: Lommel, Belgium

Linked with the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process, the conference programme celebrates Bosland’s achievements and provides a platform to stimulate networking. As well as specific exchanges on inclusive territorial governance, sustainable forest management and science-based adaptive strategies, the programme also showcases innovative business case development in a challenging socio-economic environment.

Who should attend?
EU, national, regional and local policymakers, Natura 2000 and other site managers, business representatives and scientists working at the interface of nature conservation and sustainable regional socio-economic development.

Why should you attend?
This conference will create a European-level platform to network with colleagues from around this beautiful continent. You will discover and meet the people involved in a truly innovative and successful integrated approach to regional sustainable development in one of the most densely populated areas of Europe. The programme also includes inspiring relevant initiatives from across Europe.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss values and integrated governance approaches, important not only for nature, but also for human health, economic development, job creation, climate, water management, tourism, and many more human dimensions.

The programme showcases initiatives drawn from civil society, the business community, agriculture and forestry, local and regional administrations, and conservationists. It includes presentations from key players and stakeholders active in the Bosland Partnership, case study presentations from other international landmark projects and initiatives, interactive discussion sessions and field visits to see ‘on the ground’ how results are being achieved and to learn from each other.

This event is also a unique opportunity for you to learn and share experience required for inclusive and sustainable forest management and governance. Above all, participation will enable you to look forward and forge new relationships with a view to developing your own existing or planned cooperation projects and initiatives.

You can register online. Please note that places are limited.    
A draft version of the programme is now available.

‘Bosland 10 years – Passion for Nature’, organized by Bosland, is supported by Natura 2000 and the LIFE programme and co-organized by Bos+ and ECNC–European Centre for Nature Conservation.
