Regional Forest Communicators Networks

The Regional Forest Communicators Networks address a pressing need to promote understanding of topical forestry issues in order to strengthen sustainable forest management in policy and practice.

The networks currently comprise nearly 500 enthusiastic professionals from both government and private organizations within the forestry sector who come together to:

  • share best practices and tools to implement effective communication campaigns on a regional level,
  • promote learning among their members, generate new contacts and alliances, and
  • exchange up-to-date information on topical forest issues.

First established in Europe almost 20 years ago, there are now six networks in five regions:


The networks share their activities online and meet regularly in capacity-building workshops and at forestry conferences to promote best practices in forest communication.

Global Group assists coordination between the networks and acts as a think-tank and advisory panel.
