Prince Charles to address circular bioeconomy event
The secrets of sustainable forest commodities
HRH Prince Charles to address nature’s key role in circular bioeconomic transformation
Each year the world loses $6.3 trillion worth of ecological services because of forest and landscape degradation. This lost value has staggering impacts on people and livelihoods, as well as on economies and ecosystems. Forests and trees are central to the global economy providing jobs, food and materials if managed sustainably.

The world must act now to seize the window of opportunity to transform our economies into ones that are sustainable, circular and nature-based, according to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. Interested in getting to hear more from Prince Charles, African environment ministers and experts? Join CIFOR-ICRAF, European Forest Institute and The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra for a half-day digital forum on the transition to a circular bioeconomy on March 19, in the leadup to the International Day of Forests.
