Blue Forests Week
Blue Forests Week is an annual event organised by the Norwegian Blue Forests Network (NBFN). In 2023, we arranged our main seminar as part of Arendalsuka. You can read more about the 2022 Blue Forests Week below, which shows the type of seminars and webinars we normally hold.
BLUE FORESTS WEEK 2022
NOV. 29 – DEC. 1
The Norwegian Blue Forests Network hosted the 3rd Annual Blue Forests Week on 29 November – 1 December 2022. Please see below for the event aims and programme.
We are facing a triple planetary crisis: climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. Blue forests help to address this crisis by capturing and sequestering carbon, nurturing marine biodiversity, improving water quality, and shielding coastal communities from erosion, storms, and flooding. Yet globally these ecosystems are declining at an alarming rate.
During Blue Forests Week 2022, we will examine current efforts to manage these ecosystems: what has worked, what hasn’t worked, and how can we best scale up efforts to protect and restore blue forests?
Blue Forest Week 2022 will begin with two online webinars on November 29th and 30th and will conclude with a hybrid seminar in Oslo on December 1st.
Participation is free and open to all. Please see below for the programme details of each event, as well as recordings and information from previous Blue Forests Weeks.
